#2 "Although we were not responsible, we are suffering the collateral damage," Martin Khor, executive director for the South Center, a Geneva-based policy think tank for developing countries, said here this week.

Yeah, when I think of "developing countries", Geneva's the first place I think of.
All the office space must've been full up in Mogadishu, huh, Martin?

#3 But of course, Geneva. The hotels and restaurants are simply fabulous, and one needn't encounter one's native riffraff. Besides, there's a long tradition of meeting in Geneva, situated as it is in neutral Switzerland; developing countries long to attach themselves to ancient diplomatic traditions.
