Germany’s Der Spiegel magazine has an article about Smoking in Germany in their English section. It’s one of the things I dread about going back there this christmas. One of the lesser things, but nonetheless. Being unable to go to a restaurant and enjoy a meal and an evening wih friends without the continuous clouds of smoke in the air. The smoke in your clothes the morning after you come home from a bar. Cigarettes are everywhere. I wish they could be a bit more be like Norway. It’ll never happen of course.
