The United Nations

IMG_0245

The United Nations. First established after WWII, it’s a place where all nations come together to peacefully discuss matters related to peace and prevention of war.
유엔. 제2차 세계 대전 이후로 설립되어 각국 대사들이 모여 평화와 전쟁 방지를 의논 할 수 있는  곳입니다.

There’s always a huge line of tourists waiting to go inside. Most tourists come in groups from schools or tour groups. There are multiple entrances into the UN. This particular one is mainly for tourists.
유엔은 항상 관광객들이 많습니다. 대부분 학교나 여행사에서 방문하기 때문에 줄이 엄청 길어요. 이 사진은 유엔으로 들어가는 관광 전용 정문입니다.

This is the first thing you will see after passing the security checkpoint. This is where the famous Knotted Gun sculpture is at. The sculpture symbolizes cessation of war.
들어가시면 첫 번째로 보이는 곳입니다. 전쟁 종식을 상징하는 이 묶여 있는 총이 유엔에서 제일 유명안 조형물입니다.

There’s meetings after meetings…after meetings in the UN. There are many meeting rooms in different sizes. But you need a pass to get into these rooms.
유엔은 미팅을 아주 많이합니다. 미팅 사이즈도 다양합니다 하니만 들어갈려면 패스가 필요합니다.

This is my favorite place in the UN. It’s called the East Lounge. It’s especially busy during lunch hours. You can see people taking naps in between meetings here.
제가 제일 좋아하는 라운지입니다. 낮잠자기 딱! 좋은 곳이에요 특히 점심시간이나 미팅 끝나고 와서 잠깐 자고가는 사람이 많아요.

Outside of the UN, there is this place that’s really good. It’s called “Dag’s Patio Cafe” and located across the street in the Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza. The burgers here are so good! Must definitely try.
유엔 건너편 Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza에 작은 햄버거 파는 곳이 있어요. 전 여기 추천해요! 진짜 맛있어요!

The Last Bookstore

IMG_7520

This reminded me of a Harry Potter scene with the flying books (not sure if a scene like this existed but it still seems like a Harry Potter themed work).

The famous part of the bookstore many people take pictures of with their loved ones. I took a picture of my current relationship status. IMG_7522

Fascinating ramp/ tunnel of books. I wonder how long it took them to glue everything together.

IMG_8038Jessica has been talking about this place for months. She said the chicken sandwich was the best she ever had. So of course I had to go and try it out.

This is the original chicken sandwich ($8). It doesn’t look like much but it was so, so good! The chicken was so soft and perfectly fried with pickles and mayo. Ours was fresh so it was hot. I wished the bun was a bit toasted but, nevertheless, delicious. (You can also see Jessica taking pictures in the background)

Right next to Delaney there’s La Palapa. They mainly sell tacos and quesadillas. But! We wanted to get the horchata.

IMG_1529
The horchata ($4) was really good and refreshing. We’ve tried a lot of horchatas and this one was pretty good.

IMG_1531
Across Delaney, theres the Red Hook Lobster Pound. They sell lobster rolls! Unfortunately, we wanted the Connecticut Lobster Roll but we had to wait 10 minutes for the butter to melt.

IMG_1533
This is the Maine Lobster Roll ($25). I was surprised with the quality. I’m pretty sensitive to seafood but this lobster was pretty fresh and cooked well. As we were eating it, it was hard to keep the lobster pieces in the bun. It was a bit of a mess. I felt like that bun was a bit dry and boring.

San Diego 4/10/2017

A couple months ago I visited San Diego with my friends. It was a three hour drive but it was worth it. Unfortunately, we had to leave after 4 hours because a friend wasn’t feeling well. Other than that this trip was pretty awesome! I didn’t get to take pictures of all the places I visited nor the things I ate because my phone was being a brat and didn’t want to store anything.

몇달전에 친구들이랑 3시간을 걸쳐서 샌디에고 갔다능!!!! 당연 운전자는 멀미 심한 내가했음..  놀러 다니는건 우리 3자매들에게는 흔치 않는 일인데 시간내서 간거였지만 아쉽게도 친구 한명이 아프다고 돌아가자 해서 4시간만에 다시 올라감ㅎ_ㅎ.. 그 외에는 진짜 좋았어욥!! 가족 제외하고 샌디에고 친구들이랑 놀러간건 딱 두번째였어요.  진짜 짜증나게도 핸드폰 용량이 적어서 다 담지 못했습니다. 절대 제가 귀찮거나 더워서 사진 찍는 시간 마저도 번거롭게 생각한건 절대 맞지만… 아닙니다.

We were trying to go to the garden next to this place but the flags caught our attention. There were little houses the represented countries from all over the world. Funny thing is people actually live in some of these houses! I tried looking for Korea but there wasn’t a house dedicated to South Korea. It was awesome because the houses were built and designed according to the each country’s culture.

원래는 저희 발은 여기 옆 공원으로 향했지만 매달려있는 국기들이 저희의 눈을 사로잡았죠. 그렇게해서 발견한 이곳!!! 바로 유엔에서 지은건데 여러 나라들을 대표하는 집들이 지어져있었어요. 진짜 신기한건 몇개 집에 사람들이 살고있다는것!! ㅎㅎ 아쉽게도 대한민국은 없었어요. 각 집마다 그 나라와 문화에 맞게 지어져있어요. 여기 와서 세계 평화의 느낌은 이런건가 라는 생각도 들었어요 ^^

2. Old Town San Diego 

IMG_7347IMG_7348IMG_7349IMG_7351

Old town San Diego is truly a neighborhood that represents and captures the historic time from 1821—1872. It was beautiful. The flowers and the layout of this area was eye-catching. There were so many things I couldn’t photograph such as the old mail room, the Well Fargo museum, the Cosmopolitan Hotel and the market because of the limited storage on my phone. I did however capture “Old Town Jerky and Root Beer”. Like the store name they have all sorts of jerky and root beer. I was really tempted to buy one but knew I would regret because if I do I’ll  get addicted to it and this will lead me to drive more than 120 miles just to satisfy my sophisticated palate.

샌디에고에서 제일 아름다운 곳이였던거같아요. 미국의 옛 모습을 그대로 간직하고있더라고요. 저는 개인적으로 1800년대에 살고싶은 사람으로서 1821—1872사이에 모습을 담긴 이 동네가 너무 좋았어요. 사진에 담지 못 한 곳들도 진짜 많았음.. 망할 핸드폰의 용량때문에 ^^.. 그래도 jerky랑 root beer에 환장하는 저로써 이건 “어머 이건 꼭 찍어야되”라는 의무감으로 찍었습니다. 여러 종류의 jerky 와 root beer 파는 곳이였지만 저는 제 자신을 자제하고 안 샀어요. 사는 그 순간에는 저도 모르게 이게 땡길때마다 120 마일 넘는 거리를 운전할껄 아니깐 제 지갑을 절대 열지 않았습니다. 사진으로 못 담은게 넘 아쉬워요 ㅠㅠ 다음에 가족이랑 가서 가족 사진 찍고싶은 곳 중 하나이에요.
