Sit Down, Have a Smoke and a Beer

This guy was visiting Venice from Sri Lanka. His friends kicked him to the curb because he smoked. They sent him outside, on a cold night, to have a smoke on the sidewalk, rather than stay inside and have warm tea with them.

We stopped to talk to him for a while. He was a nice guy, very interesting and, as you can tell, he let us take his picture. He even offered us a beer.

Even though I don’t smoke, I’d much rather have a beer with an interesting chap than some tea with some stuck-up “friends” couped up inside. Wouldn’t you?

Until next smoke…
