Everything will soon be gone, I need to etch it firmly in my mind #expopeople

"What started as a simple job ended up being an unforgettable part of my life. I’ve been a member of the Social Media Team at Expo Milano 2015 since May 1. It’s been a hectic and exciting six months, knowing that it would all be over in the blink of an eye. All this I’ll miss very much. It's strange to think that in just under a week we won’t be walking around here any more and that everything I see and love will be gone. The thing that lifts my spirits and lets me deal with this time in a tranquil way is knowing that I’ve been a small part of an event that involved the entire world. I can only feel proud of what I’ve achieved. As a tourist I haven’t had the chance to see much, but I was really fascinated by the UK pavilion. A huge and impressive beehive among the poppies, it’s magical, especially at night. The Expo was a unique experience, it should be experienced in person because it offers different sensations and emotions for everyone”.

"At the Coop Future Food District, there are five outdoor kiosks and I work in one that sells food. I’ve worked at the Coop for twenty-five years, they chose me as I love to chat. When I’m not working, I go for a pedal on the fitness bikes over at the Technogym. I go to the gym almost every day, I love spinning, kickboxing, fusion conditioning, the fitness room, and swimming: it’s good for the soul as well as the body. And you get to meet many people, just like here!"

"I’m from Japan, but my real love is American food. I just can’t resist burgers with barbecue sauce! Since I’ve been here I’ve never eaten at a Japanese restaurant, but I'm definitely going to try it soon. Whenever I’m missing my family I cook omurice, a dish consisting of fried rice, chicken, carrots and onion covered with an omelette and immediately I feel as if they’re here with me”.
