In addition to the photo op and the shrine, today a number of kids were wearing Haibao badges. I have no idea from whom or where they came.

I have to admit I find the veneration of Haibao a little troubling. Though, I suppose that, given the alternatives, indoctrination in the cult of Expo 2010, with its dogma of cosmopolitanism, modernism and high-tech urbanism isn’t so bad.
