It turned out there are countries worse than Germany! I mean smoking.

Germans actually made some progress this year, it is now possible to eat out with smell of food around. But I just came to a restaurant in Austrian Lustenau – people are smoking, sitting with kids at a table. Three baby chairs in a corner are waiting for little customers – so touching! And ash-trays are on each table.

I asked a waiter:
– Do you have a non-smoking area?
– No, smoking is allowed everywhere here.
– Is it like this in the whole Austria?
– Yeah. Either it is a smoking restaurant, or a non-smoking one. No mixing.

P.S. The food is good – it is a Greek restaurant, called “Corfu” :)
