Awesome pictures--thanks Ed :biggrin:

Yes thanks ed. The place looks a bit intimidating. 

I really enjoyed visiting the UN in NYC (although it's technically not in the US) and asked some suitably awkward questions. There's plenty of murals there, a guitar gun (or is it a gun guitar?) from Shakira and quite a bit of ivory. I hope the latter hasn't gone because I have quite strong feelings on art. As far as I'm concerned if Hitler painted the Mona Lisa, it is still the Mona Lisa. And some of the ivory they are destroying at the moment is a work by very skilled artists. I just don't buy the reasons.

Also I think my great uncle was a representative for Nobel in Japan.
