French connections

Vive la rentrée!

FRENCH CONNECTIONS - Thurs. 01.09.16: This week we explore the French phenomenon of "la rentrée": the moment when summer draws to an end and people return to real life. Many other countries experience this transition, but in France it's a big deal. It's a renaissance after the summer hiatus. Kids go back to school, politicians take off the gloves and everyday workers make a fresh set of resolutions.
