anti-smoking, travel

Europe so smoking

Romanians ask me — as a tourist — how I like Romania.

Too much smoking, is my reply.

Eduard Benko. Romania, 2009

Romania did not ban smoking in bars, cafes and restaurants until 2016. A backwards nation.

In fact, here are a few nations with even higher rates of smoking: Montenegro, Belarus, Macedonia, Slovenia, Belgium, Luxembourg.

Europeans are the world’s biggest smokers and drinkers. I couldn’t live in Europe. Aside from second hand smoke, many addicts give me the impression that their main reason to live is to get to the next cigarette. In about 4 minutes. 😦

Africans smoke the least, overall, by the way. It’s a pleasure to travel there.
