The expanded use of no smoking areas has also resulted in some places set aside as designated smoking area. This is the smoking area outside the Marriott Hotel in San Jose.
My brother used to work at a hospital in northern Minnesota that provided for the only smoking area to be on the loading dock next to the garbage bins. My brother commented that the sight of people standing outdoors in the freezing Minnesota winters, next to garbage bins, is proof that smoking is addictive, as that could not be a pleasant experience.
This week we are showing photos of the Galapagos Islands on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
