Description

New York Times correspondent Dionne Searcey tells us about her work as the paper's West Africa bureau chief, where her team's reporting on the women kidnapped by Boko Haram won them a Pulitzer. Learn how the palace of Versailles, just outside Paris, was built to impress.  And still does so for visitors today. And hear about the elaborate traditions of Bulgaria and Greece, as they celebrate the Orthodox church's date for Easter this weekend.
