We Are Not Deceived

  Title


Marco, here on vacation from Stüggart, inspects the Rolexes, Omegas, Longines, Rados, Zodiacs and Gruens on the Cambodian street merchant’s tray. His cute little daughter, Marie Lisa, points to one, just the right size.
“How much?” he asks.
“Ten Euro,” the Cambodian replies.
“Done.”

The purchase brings smiles all around. Why? Because we are not deceived.
