A Friday Funday at the NYSE

Ive walked past the iconic NYSE building many, many times but had never been inside - so excitedly  last Friday I woke up early to go downtown to photograph. The event, Peru Day, was focused on Peru as an investment opportunity, and was filled with speakers and panels and discussion.  Throughout the day, various speakers presented: Ismael Benavides (Minister of Finance in Peru), H.E. Luis Valdivieso (Ambassador of Peru to the U.S.), Julio Velarde (Governor, Central Reserve Bank of Peru), Dan D'aniello (founder of Carlyle) ... After running around, snapping shots and eating lunch (fish + risotto cake + asparagus), the day was wrapped up with gifts given by Duncan Niederauer (NYSE CEO) and the closing bell ceremony on the trading floor.  How exciting!
