Exploring Brazil at China's World Expo


China is celebrating the opening ceremony of the Shanghai World Expo, a celebration of global culture, drawing exhibits from all over the world in specially designed pavilions.

The Expo has reportedly cost more than the Beijing Olympics, and 70 million people are expected to visit over the next six months.

It is the first time a developing country has hosted the Expo, described as the Olympic Games of the economy, science and technology.

Mishal Husain visited the spectacular Brazilian pavilion to find out how it brings samba, soccer and the spirit of Ipanema to China.
