Georges' Nationality

There's this thing bugging me that all of the articles on my North Pole expedition have this inaccurate detail (besides many). All of them, from Nguoi Viet, Tuoi tre to Thanh Nien, for some reason, "awarded" Georges Baumann, one of team member in the expedition, a French citizenship! He is not a French man. He is a Swiss. I thought I would "give" back his true nationality here :) He is supposed to be on a historic expedition crossing the Arctic from Russia to Canada via North Pole this year. I am not sure if he did it or not. Nonetheless, I wish him luck. By the way, the picture in is homepage was taken in our trip. His face mask is very well built, but it resembles (a little) Dr. Hannibal's mask :)
