Citroën 2CV: symbol of one side of France
Our unit will comprise French history, art and current affairs.
Would you like to make a quiche to serve in class for bonus points? They are fun to make and are excellent when served cold.
Would you like to bring some chilled champagne to class for a teeny taste? Sor-ry. No can do.
Citroen means "citizen" and the car above is the French equivalent of the VW beetle or a latter-day Model T. The 2cv model is spartan and slow but is delightfully inexpensive.
