Mexico - Live It to Believe It: Interactive Pop-Up Pavilion

For the next two weeks you can be transported to Mexico without leaving sight of London's South Bank. To help celebrate Year of Mexico in the UK, Mexico has launched an interactive exhibition near City Hall on The South Bank.

You enter a pop-up dome which features Mexico's story told through art and interactive culture. You can feel like you are there, riding rapids, travelling in a hot air balloon or exploring some fascinating Mexican cities.  Experience interactive touch screens and with state of the art technology and try on virtual Mexican fashion or sit on virtual beaches.  Hear all the sights and sounds of busy, bustling cities or white water rapids.
A central feature and treat is a real VW Beatle which has been decorated with more than two million beads and took 8 artists over 9,000 hours of hard work to design and decorate.
Mexico is also proud of it's status as the only nation to have its cuisine designated by UNESCO as of 'Intangible Heritage of Humanity.  Whilst you visit the pop-up dome you can also get some authentic Mexican street food prepared by the acclaimed Mexican street kitchen Wahaca.
I had a delicious marinated grilled steak Burrito ...
The pop-up pavilion will be open to the public from Wednesday 25 February 2015 - Wednesday 11 March 2015 from 10:00am to 20:00pm. It is located next to City Hall on the South Bank and is free entrance for adults and children.

I was not paid to attend this event. As usual all opinions and photos are my own.
