I have some very Dear friends that lve in Athens, yes they are all Greek.
A couple or so years ago, they tell me that laws were introduced that bars restuarants should provide NO smoking areas.
some did some did not. I was told by my Greek friends that even though NO smoking areas were provided people still smoked, the reason so I was told is that for example.
If the Eldest member of a Greek family smoked and they went for lunch or dinnner and booked a NO smoking table for 20 and he/she smoked then they would smoke and no one would say anything out of total respect for thier elders.
Greek people smoke and so do I, respect their ways as we should all respect each others.
Have a good weekend all
