1 Let me introduce myself.... My name is Aurelio BAY

2 I live in Switzerland Federal capital: BERN Financial capital (banks) : Zuerich International capital (United Nations, Red Cross,...): Geneva Sport capital (Olympic committee) : Lausanne => where I am

3 Lausanne and neighbours Vevey : Nestle Montreux: Jaz festival

4 Lausanne, the Leman lake, the Alps

5 The Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) Funded in 1918 as an institute of engineering of the Lausanne University In 1946 became "Polytechnic school of the Lausanne University" In 1969 became federal (like the old sister in Zuerich, ETHZ)
