Geneve

It’s finally Geneve!

L1070986We were greeted by a traffic jam as soon as we enter the city. It was so bad that we decided to ditch the car & walked around the water’s edge.

L1070988They look ready to party~ ^^

On the last day, my brother insisted us going to this place:

L1080093Now, I’m not gonna lie, I’ve no idea who those four are. So, I did a little research so that I can write something here (more like just typing out ‘Geneve religious leader statue’ and let google do the rest). According to wikipedia, this place is called the Reformation Wall and the statues are of William Farel, John Calvin, Theodore Beza, and John Knox. Do refer to the link if you want to know more of those guys.

I personally don’t enjoy the journey there. The reason being, I don’t know who those people are! Yea, I know. I’m not a very educated Christian. >_<

Next, we head to the broken chair:

L1080097It’s litterally a broken chair. A giant one. It’s right in front of the UN building.

L1080098We ended up doing a guided tour inside the UN complex.

Did you know? Out of the 195 countries in the world only 2 countries doesn’t have a seat in the UN?

L1080106Our guide for the day explaining to us the general information about the organization inside one of the halls.

The most interesting place was the human rights room where an actual meeting was taking place. Because of that, we weren’t allowed to take any pictures. So I googled it:

Disclaimer: I do not own the photo. I merely added the image by adding a link.

The whole room’s renovation was fully paid by Spain. The interesting part about the room is obviously the ceiling. It was created by a Spanish artist to represent the sea. The fluctuations represents the waves & even white foams of the sea. The different colors are to represent the different countries. The delegates from each countries that are seated in the room will not be able to see all the colors – just like how we can’t see the whole picture from just one perspective.

I’m not one who like to learn these things, but it’s fun listening to the guide as he takes us from place to place.

After the tour we head straight to the airport & were stranded there for hours before finally able to check in & start our long journey back home.

Hope you’re actually reading what I write and not just looking at the pictures. ^^
