Don't know where else to post these photos. This morning, I went over to the General Assembly at the United Nations and listened to some of the speeches at the general debate. I posted about 20 of the photos I took at:

I like the picture of PM Brown. I didn't realize one could take pictures of the dignitaries, but if I'm ever in NY, it would be a great opportunity to get pictures of leading diplomats and politicians.

Do you have to go through a security check first, or a procedure ?

Hi,

The UN is closed to the public during the week of the general debate. I work there so was able to go sit in the back of the General Assembly Hall during some of the speeches. I had to get a special pass to go into that part of the building during this time, but once I got it, I could come and go as I pleased.

Listening to the speeches and watching the activity on the floor was quite interesting. Last year I watched it on the internet, but seeing it live was better!
