Where There's Smoke
...there's a Spaniard. The "No Smoking" campaign doesn't seem to have caught on in Spain. There are smokers EVERYWHERE! There are even signs on the doors of many establishments alerting smokers that they are indeed welcome to light up.
I am choking over here! I'll be sitting down in a quiet park or on a square writing, reading, or simply chillin' and someone will come sit next to me & light up without a second thought. Of course, I can't ask them not to. After all, it's their country. I'm not sure if my getting up & moving to another spot is any less rude.
While I'm enjoying atmospherically cleaner, fresher air than the US, the toxic fumes piping from its citizens is suffocating.
