But the real issue is around restaurants. Some are non smoking. Most have a smoking area - and we know how well that works. And many don't seem to care. And people smoke hard - between every course, either at the table or they go outside.
We've given up on one coffee shop altogether. Caffe Veloce has nice coffee and pastries, but it is clearly a smokers place.
Most surprising to me is the number of very young people smoking. Quite different than Canada where smoking was made a workplace health and safety issue, which got it out of the restaurants. And of course there is the ongoing demonization of smoking in the west.
Enough on that - here's a picture of s little cutie we met on her way to a Hallowe'en party!
