The beauty of Sweden and keeping your head when plans go awry! Meet RFI Traveller, Fabien Jannic-Cherbonnel in this week's Sound Kitchen.

 Welcome to The Sound Kitchen. You can catch the programme on-the-air every Saturday, at our new times: 6:10, 14:45 and 16:45 universal time. You’ll hear the winner’s names announced and the week’s quiz question, along with all the other ingredients you have grown accustomed to: your letters and essays, On This Day, quirky facts and news, interviews, and great music … so be sure and tune in every Saturday. 

This week’s quiz answer: At the beginning of March Susan asked you to answer three questions about the round-the-world flight of the solar-powered Solar Impulse 2 air craft, which is promoting clean energy.

She wanted you to tell her the names of the pilots of the Solar ? The plane’s wingspan? And the weight of the plane? AND the answers are…

The answer is: The pilots names are André Borsch-berg and Betrand Piccard... The Solar Impulse 2's wingspan measures 72 metres and the craft weighs 2.3 tonnes

The winners this week are: Mary Beth Lemoine in Lesotho; Oslemy Pup Santi-eteban in Cuba; Li Ming in China; Mohamed Mobeen Arshad in Pakistan; S. Muhammad Shamim in India.
