Anyone else feeling like you’re playing a constant game of catch-up this month? Perhaps it’s still the reorganization of schedules that comes with la rentrée, or maybe it’s because the days are getting shorter–either way, we figure it’s better late than never. This month we’re creating one single page to highlight the events going on in and around Lausanne. If you see something missing, give us a shout!
