Can you find the Non-Smoking section in this Swiss restaurant? You may have to look REALLY close...
There it is! That one small, two-seater table. Completely surrounded by tables with ashtrays!
And I am pretty sure that if you asked to smoke there, they would take away the non-smoking sign and bring you an ashtray. At one restaurant, when we asked if they had a non-smoking section, they went to a table in the middle of several smokers, picked up the ash tray on the table and said, "Here. This is non-smoking." And they weren't even being sarcastic.
Sigh. How much longer before smoking is finally banned here? France and Bavaria became non-smoking on January 1st. Hopefully it will come. Eventually.
