Ban Ki-moon


Like he did last year, Secretary General of the United Nations Mr. Ban Ki-moon chose Torino at the end of August to work at U.N. 2009 Agenda. They were at Royal Palace and if you enlarge the photo you may see lights at first floor. The photo has been taken at sunset.

Come lo scorso anno, il Segretario Generale delle Nazioni Unite Ban Ki-moon ha scelto Torino per lavorare all'agenda 2009 dell'ONU. Essi erano a Palazzo Reale e allargando la foto si possono vedere le luci al primo piano. La fotografia è stata scattata al tramonto.

Love the facade an the colors at sunset are just perfect for it. I always loved those big opne squares in Europe...we dont have many here.

Thank you to each of you for your appreciated words.

Barbara, it's funny that just above you Babooshka said the same about UK (in Europe of course). My very personal opinion is that "squares" are mostly into Greek and latin culture -- ἀγορά = Agora = square... The most important square of the πόλις = polis = city

I'm sure that, once I visit Torino, I'm going to be another Korean who'll adore the city.

@Sunkyoung, Even if I'm personally convinced you're right, I really hope the city won't disappoint you (sometime may happen). Of course, you're officially invited.

@Sunkyoung, I forgot to say that it is a great honour to host Mr. Ban Ki-moon but it isn't less great to host a young lady who loves so much European culture, our art, habit and tradition.

Sunkyoung said...

I'm also honoured to be welcomed by you. Good night!
