JE goes to the UN



It was a great experience getting to go into the different halls and seeing them 3al 6abee3a..






The building itself wasn't as i imagined it would be.. it was an old building.. nothing fancy at all.. but i loved the items that u see scattered around in glass boxes.. each one represent a gift from a UN member..

the one u can see below is Iran's gift that is placed at the entrance, framed rugs of pictures of ru2asa2 il umam il muta7ida min il bedaya lai al7een..


this is Kuwait's gift.. a large boum..




This is one of the halls and as u can see there was a side meeting being held..




Unfortunately, i was not allowed to take pics of il qa3a illi i like to call qa3at il ameer (alah yir7umah).. the one that he spoke his heartbreaking speech ayam il ghazoom in bcoz of an ongoing meeting.. bs il shu3oor of standing in that room was indescribable.. i had goose bumps allover.. allah lay3ood theech il ayam..
