On a little shuttle-boat packed full we got to the EXPO sections on other side of the river. Ship-yards, factories and power-plants have been converted to exhibition-halls and new extravagant structures added. In the "Urban Best Practice Area" cities from all over the world show what they do for the future. We got a tour of London's pavilion, a zero-emission house with solar panels and green plants on the roofs. Odense had a bicycle path and bikes to try, all very popular. The city of Bremen had examples of how electric cars and an intelligent grid could work together. But the car on show could not drive. Later we sat down in Madrid's house and had paellas with a view to a performance staged under a  giant street-cooling tower.
