These two black crows shadowed me for two weeks last month smoking drugs in the municipal albergues, singing at 5am and inappropriately offending many female pilgrims in female bathrooms!

Sometimes I wonder if some people have a much greater smoker phobia than others and can spot even the smallest incident from afar.
Actually, heavy smoke does bother me as it does others. Casinos are a good example of this.
However....my comments were meant to indicate that in my experience the smoke problem is very limited along the Camino. I saw no smoking in the Albergues. I was not ever bothered by smokers at dinner or along the way..either time.
It seems that this thread would put the fear of "smoke" into those who are planning when the actual experience Will probable be something else. It should be even less with the new law.
Just my personal experience. You all may have been stalked by smokers.

I guess that some people are a great deal more sensitive to smokers and seem to notice them every time. I do have friends that do this at home. They can spot someone smoking from a block away.
