Argentina
=======

When I went it was just a funky two level blue coloured interior with a bar at the front. 

However I found out later from one of the other bloggers there were dance performances taking place.

Italy
===

I had to rush thru this due to time

There is uniformed Italian Officer at the entrance. 

They talk about their history with the ocean as a seafaring nation of explorers. 

There is a movie theatre which I skipped with another uniformed officer outside. 

Finally a giftshop
  
 
 
 









 











































 








 

 

The Netherlands
=============

The inside filled with dutch masterpieces hanging in rows of various frame sizes from floor to ceiling.

Then there is gift shop with Dutch themed items
  
 
 











































 

Mexico
======

There are korean women outside in traditional white frilly dresses who have tricolor markers to paint the mexican flag on your cheek or hand. 

You then enter an auditorium with the giant word Mexico atop a water curtain that falls from below. The water then stops so the movie can play on the screen behind

It begins by illuminating each of the letters of the country name above with different images. The main movie then shows historical aztec temples and tourist sights.
