Paul drags me out to downtown. It is a cold night but we can't feel anything. We want to go to "Les Bains Douches", literally "The Bath Showers", a public bath house turned into a night club. The décor's by Stark. We stand in the short line for a few hours watching Rolls-Royces empty their contents into the bar. Paul asks the doorman how he can tell. He points to Paul's watch. He can tell by the watch, he says. What if it's a fake? He can tell. There is a niche for everything in an old country.
