The Brazil Pavilion welcomed nine special guests on Tuesday -- children from needy families and survivors of the 2008 earthquake in Sichuan Province. Pedro Wendler, the pavilion director, acted as their tour guide.
This special group of visitors were invited to play football in the "Happiness Room." They also interacted with some exhibits and created their impression of Brazil at the "Diversity Corridor."
Toward the end of their visit, they chanted "Obrigado," meaning "thank you" in Portuguese.
