International Trade Fair

So last year we went to the International Trade Fair (IIF) here in the capital. It was really cool. The only problem was, that last year we went on a weekend night... so it was extrememly busy... so busy that we could hardly move around.... SO.... this year we decided we'd go on Wednesday at 1:00 when it opened (that's around lunch time for most people here)... we thought that it wouldn't be so busy then...
I mean really, what was I thinking... we live in a city of millions of people!! We got to one of the gates and this is what we saw....
So we thought, hmmm.... maybe all of these people are just hanging around and waiting for other people or something like that... so we decided to check out the lines.... hahaha... see below:
Just a few people in line hunh? hahaha :) This is only one of the many entrances... I think there were about 12 gates!!! Hahaha... Adam and I figured out a quick way to get in :) and we were in in about 10 minutes :) Of course, there's always a little entertainment while you are waiting:
Inside the trade fair, there are sooo many things to do!! There are HUGE buildings for each state of the country that has stuff about the state and you can see what they are famous for. They also sell things that are special to their state. It's really neat... Below is a picture of some guys performing in front of one of those buildings...
This guy was stylin' in his pink turbin! :)
We had a lot of fun, and at the end of the day, I got to drive a rickshaw!! How cool is that :) hahaha :) (I look really cool :))
