We arrived in Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport and located the macaroon cart before catching a connecting flight to Rennes.
About an hour later — thrilled and relieved to have finally arrived at our destination — the Porter’s crew touched down in Rennes at about 2PM (14:00) local time.
Almost as soon as we entered the airport, we could see the students’ host families gathered to greet us just beyond a set of glass doors. Our students’ sense of anticipation and excitement was enthusiastically matched by our French hosts, who applauded as we entered the “arrivals” area.
And so begins the host family experience for Porter’s Intermission students in France, January 2017!
