Again another 'must see' place. Charles wasn't so interested in visiting it, but when we got there he catually really enjoyed it. You could take a tour of the building to certain rooms but it was about $14 and half of the rooms shown on the leaflet didnt interest me in looking at. I just wanted to go to the General Assembly Hall where they have all the main gatherings. The rooms included The Security Council Chamber, The Trusteeship Council Chamber, The Economic and Social Council Chamber and various exhibits.We also didnt have very much time as we still had to get up to Central Park, but looking around the places we were allowed to be in was very interesting. There was a photo exhibition at the time and most photos were from Peru and China...again...she's following me everywhere...and they wrre really captivating.
