*Two months into this year’s Expo, in Shanghai, Estonia has recorded the millionth visitor to its  pavilion, reports EPL Online. This visitor was a 17-year-old Chinese schoolboy named Wang Qi. The number of visitors at the pavilion will probably exceed the total number of residents in Estonia before the end of July.
