Story: An evening scene in a bustling European city at a beautiful hotel, ensconced in an upscale and secure neighborhood, away from the hurly-burly of the street, with all the comforts that a great lobby, restaurant and bar provide for the guests that come from all over the world. Once in a while, in this very romantic setting, the maitre de’s and bartenders notice two individuals, often unfamiliar to one another, striking up animated conversations at the bar over expensive Polish vodka and who, after a couple of hours sampling each other’s opinions and the appetizers from the world-class chef, eventually walk out of the well appointed room, together, with barely a wave and a nod to the staff, happily heading for who knows where and for what?
