Gran Canaria: XI+

The lingering haze and smell of cigarette smoke pervades most, if not all, of the establishments in this resort.

Lest you think I am biased, readers, I have no issue with smokers themselves, most of whom are as decent and honourable a bunch as the next man or woman.

My gripe is with the smoke in bars, clubs and even restaurants, which is horrid and obnoxious.

I suspect that holiday-makers take advantage of Spain's liberal stance on Smoking.

Certainly in the United Kingdom we have rigorous laws on Smoking, firmly enforced.

The great irony, of course, as always, is that we British adhere religiously to EU directives and legislation; whereas other states in Euroland might well flaunt and evade it.
