We've arrived in Geneva!
Switzerland is one of the most beautiful places to visit and it is famous for its phenomenal infrastructure. Everything is known to run smoothly and cohesively. Our first stop was of course, shopping.
If you're in the mood for chocolate or have a sweet tooth, we have the spot for you. Zeller Chocolatier is the best chocolate we could find, and it was exactly what we were looking for. They have been running since 1959 and you can tell as soon as you taste their chocolate that they know exactly what they are doing. 10/10
Our next stop would be the United Nations (shopping and chocolate aren't our only interests).
What does the United Nations in Geneva do? Here's your answer:
"Housed at the Palais des Nations, the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) serves as the representative office of the Secretary-General at Geneva. A focal point for multilateral diplomacy, UNOG services more than 8,000 meetings every year, making it one of the busiest conference centres in the world. With more than 1,600 staff, it is the biggest duty stations outside of United Nations headquarters in New York.
Providing key infrastructure and support, UNOG contributes significantly to the Organization’s efforts to maintain international peace and security, to advance disarmament, to protect and promote human rights, to eradicate poverty, to implement sustainable development practices and to provide fast, effective humanitarian relief in emergencies – to mention just a few of the tasks. A large number of dignitaries and high-level delegations come to UNOG every year to participate in bilateral exchanges, intergovernmental meetings, conferences and other events, making UNOG a centre for information sharing and exchange" (UN Geneva).
We were extremely lucky to have been invited to the United Nations Office at Geneva. Our time here was well spent, leaving with a new understanding of the work that they have been progressing over the years.
