Last week some idiot completely blocked off my car and I had to take a taxi to work. By the time I got there, I had a nice acquired tobacco aroma from the driver, as expected! However, on my way back home, I had a very interesting encounter, that made me remember this photo I took in a Jordanian cab. When someone smokes in the car, or in any closed space for that matter, I always remember the techniques used to smoke fish & meats.
Anyway, the cab driver I was driving with on my way back home, though a smoker himself, ask his passenger not to smoke in the car and wait till he gets to his destination. Now that was an unexpectedly refreshing act as opposed to the usual cab drivers taking it as an opportunity to grab a free smoke and puff up in a good company 🙂
Have you ever taken a ride with any similar Beiruti cab drivers?
… and speaking of Beirut & Amman, don’t forget to attend Twestival Beirut-Amman this Thursday, March 25.
Did you know that smoking in public places was banned in Syria?
And it is about time we stop chain smoking, or second hand smoking, in Lebanon as well.
Over 1700 have already signed this petition, but that is not enough, join in the forces!
On another note, 35 bars & pubs in Gemmayze will be having a non-smoking day tomorrow, 28 October.
