I was in Lausanne a few weeks ago.

Lausanne View from Cathedral

Sitting down few minutes at the Lausanne Cathedral, I noticed someone working on the organ console. As he made his way up the stairs, I motioned to him and asked him if I could see the organ. I was in luck, he was an American from CB Fisk working on the 10 year maintenance of the organ.

So I snapped a few pictures 🙂

Just thought someone out there would like to know 🙂
