    François Monet is Pierre’s nephew. He’s 27 years old and works in a large French chemical company. He’s a salesman and he travels to many factories throughout the European Union. He often travels to Huelva, a small city not far from Seville, in Spain. When he goes to Seville, he always rents a car to drive to Huelva. That’s how he met Inés García. They met because of a traffic accident. François thinks he was lucky to have the accident, because otherwise he wouldn’t have met Inés. Now he thinks about her every day and calls her as often as he can. He’s even invited her to visit Paris. However, he’s a little afraid of having a more serious relationship with her because he doesn’t understand the character of the people from the south of Spain, especially from Seville. They seem like fun people who look for ways to enjoy life. But he still remembers the opera he saw several years ago called “Carmen”. In the opera, a young soldier fell in love with a gypsy girl from Seville. The poor soldier had all kinds of problems. Inés wasn’t a gypsy girl, but sometimes she talked and behaved like the singer who played the role of Carmen in the opera. Inés had black hair and dark eyes. François found her very attractive and very different from the girls in Paris. The last time he spoke to her, he invited her to visit Paris. Since then, he’s called her three times, but her mobile phone was disconnected each time. He hopes she’ll call him.
