That’s what I was wondering. I seriously hope Carson didn’t take the time to paint that just for this bit…although it wouldn’t surprise me.

I believe the painting is attributed to one Dmitry Samarov.

You need to watch French in Action. Calling it a “cultural phenomenon” probably does not do it justice. It’s intoxicating, as is the female lead. Were she not French–and therefore an idle communist–she would have been a shoo-in for Dayn Perry’s “beautiful women” folder.

“In the conversation you’ve just heard, Romain has explained to Pauline his holiday travel plans.”

Whose holiday plans? How am I to know whose holiday travel plans Romain is explaining? If only antecedents were clarified, his problem (i.e.: Carson’s problem) could have been averted.
