around the world – part 26 (greding, rauchen verboten)

January 20 2008:

Back on the ground in Greding.  It is unseasonably warm here – about 11c – but I’m not minding it one bit.   I have noticed the immediate effect of the EU wide ban on smoking in restaurants and other public places – Frankfurt airport seemed just a little less claustrophobic what with the smokers banished to ventilated smoking rooms and the AmMarkt is quite pleasant again.  On previous winter trips the AmMarkt could at times seem like one giant ashtray, however not only is there no trace of smoking, it seems as if the hotel public rooms have received a long overdue airing out.  All good in my opinion.
