Cetaceans? In Switzerland? No, but there are quite few knowledgeable Swiss around in the field of cetology. Excellent conference in the surroundings of Lugano town. Surprised by a full size model of a whale's heart - that is large!

The first conference where we had a 24/7 internet connection. One only but still. Somebody pulled a cable all the way through the hallway to get us conneceted.
