Last year Jason got to go to Germany, England, and Portugal for a work trip, and I had to stay home. He had a good time, and especially enjoyed London, promising that the two of us would go there soon. But, he said, there would be a problem for me — smoke everywhere, and especially in the pubs. I have asthma that is triggered by cigarette smoke, so I can’t be around smoke at all. There are some smoke-free pubs in London, but most of them aren’t smoke-free.
Well, that’s about to change. Like Washington State, England is about to have a complete ban on smoking in indoor public places. The rest of Great Britain will soon have this as well, and Ireland already has one, so we will be able to enjoy the British Isles more safely.
