The expo starts May 1 and runs for six months. It is expected to draw 70 million visitors
  3. 3. Workers are seen at the Seed Cathedral, part of the UK Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo site. The 20-meter-high cube-like Seed Cathedral will be covered by 60,000 slim, transparent acrylic rods, which will quiver in the breeze, according to the official website of Shanghai Expo

Yang's is located on one of many renovation sites that mushroomed in Shanghai ahead of the 2010 World Expo.
