Smoking in Cairo

The immigration official who stamped by passport was smoking. The two policemen standing near the immigration counter were smoking. The porter who tried to carry my bag was smoking. The woman who organised my taxi was smoking. The taxi driver offered me a cigarette and seemed upset when I refused.

A big ‘no smoking’ sign, about five-foot wide, greeted me as I stepped off the plane. I don’t think the message has got through yet.
