Is that all tobacco??? Holy cow! he looks quite happy!
Chris: Yes it's all tobacco Elizabeth, at Munich Hbf. They smoke quite a lot still in Germany and I told him we no longer see sights like this in the UK

I think he is laughing at all the people who forget to read the warning written on the packages.... but then he might be a happy man all together and does not smoke at all. I hope you only bought some sugar free mints?? Or did you hit the jackpot wink...
Chris: I have never hit the jackpot Astrid but I keep trying. I used to smoke and loved it, but common sense (unusually) prevailed..
OMG. That's way too much tobacco to see day in and day out. BUT I must say it is quite the collection!
Chris: A record shot Ginnie, I no longer approve of this DISGUSTING habit

Crikey! Here in the UK I believe that it all has to be sold in plain boxes and hidden behind shutters. Just think how much cleaner our streets would be had Sir Walter Raleigh not come back with this evil weed.
Chris: You're quite right, he has a lot to answer for

I never saw such a shop - if the tobacconist himself is smoking? He looks rather healthy.
Chris: This shop is in the bowels of Munchen Hbf Philine
If it had not been SWR it would have been some one else ... probably someone like Murdoch.
Chris: What ON EARTH are you talking about!??
A happy fellow...
Chris: There's probably a lot of money in this game Larry

A friend remarked yesterday that it is all vaping shops here now, Chris
Chris: I think I read somewhere that vaping now exceeds actual smoking in the UK

I didn’t think that they could display fags etc like this anymore Tiff.
Chris: Not in the UK Chad but this is Germany, another world..

So after all the common and good sense have kicked in and no-one smokes or vape anymore, people will still die of cancer. At least the house won't stink anymore.
Chris: And all those poor tobacco company executives will be found begging on the streets..
Goodness gracious, even before screens became mandatory I had never seen as many different brands as this, thank goodness I don't use the awful stuff any more.
Chris: We all know better nowadays don't we.
He has no wife. She would not let him leave the house looking like this.
Chris: You make a good point Mary

Goodness! That's certainly not a sight we are familiar with these days.
Chris: This is why I asked him if I could take the picture Anne..
Wow, a sight that has ( thank goodness! ) almost disappeared here. A dealer in DEATH!
Chris: Yes indeed Frank, and I was once an addict myself
Like you I am a reformed smoker and the smell now disgusts me. However, I would encourage smokers to carry on as they are paying all that tax so that I don't have to
Chris: Good point..
