United Nations, Geneva

Wednesday we took a trip to the United Nations office in Geneva, Switzerland. It was really cool! I can’t really tell you in detail where each picture is from in the building, but you can find out all of the information about the office here. We had a tour guide who spoke in English, but there were a lot of times I couldn’t hear her clearly. Everyone was really tired too.

This was one of the conference rooms they let us sit in. They have translators in the very top levels. Each person has headphones and can listen to the meeting in his own language.

This was probably my favorite thing about the office. This is another conference room. The ceiling cost 20 million dollars to make. The plaster stalagmites (stalactites?) hang from the ceiling. Paint was shot up by large pipes. We weren’t able to go into the room or see it up close, but it’s even more amazing in real life.

Every room was different.

The famous meeting room with the world-renowned symbol on the wall. Everything echoes in this room. It was truly amazing.

We were greeted by peacocks outside. How majestic is that?! Having peacocks roam the grounds. You go, Switzerland. You know how it’s done.

I still have more catching up to do, but it’s time for dinner. Maybe afterwards. Happy weekend everyone!
