  1. I saw this back in September 2008, but I guess you know that as these are my pictures from the show. It was so good I went back a 2nd time, as they constantly change the exhibits adding more ‘rice facts’ throughout each day and announcing the latest addition over a tannoy system.

    It made me smile, it made me think, it made me happy and saddened me, I do recall I may even have laughed out loud at some of the clever placing (see http://www.flickr.com/photos/sparks68/2895771817/in/set-72157607290874170/)

    It’s a very clever concept and thankfully all the rice used is washed and goes back into the food chain.

    If ever you get a chance to see this in person then do make the effort to go along, as the pictures are only a taster, it really is something you need to see for yourself.
