commute

This photo was taken this morning in V-town waiting for the train only to arrive at work to find out that the students had blocked the high school protesting the new reforms. According to the teachers it is the first time the students have ever blocked the school in its 20 year history, not even during the CPE a few years ago.

I wonder how long the strike will play out, I could see it gathering momentum and lasting until Christmas... who knows...

Oh my goodness! The train photo is lovely but I really wish you would have taken a picture of the students blocking the school in Carentan! I would have loved to have seen that. I was there during the CPE debacle and many of our students trekked to Caen to participate in the protests because they just couldn't get anything going at home. I'm sorry that you made the trip for nothing but I'm a little proud of them for finally embracing the French art of protest. :)

I know! I was tempted to take a picture, but I didn't want them to think it was in some way mocking their protest... it continued Wednesday and I called today and its still blocked up. Secretly I'm saying go guys! I think it's great their putting action to their words.
