2001 French and English Idioms


MANHATTAN BOUND 5 TRAIN
Utma, who works at the Department of Sanitation
was reading 2001 French and English Idioms By Francois Denoeu, David Sices, and Jacqueline Slices

Utma was reading this book to improve his English. He didn't seem to understand that he was being asked about his book for the purposes of a blog. He was very suspicious. He would not let me take a picture of the book. I told him I did not want to take a picture of him, only the book. That did not matter. Later, when I was waiting to exit the train at Franklin Avenue, I overheard the man sitting across from him explain what I wanted.
