TOBACCO, ITALIAN STYLE
Smoking is still fairly common in Italy...probably throughout most of Europe. Thankfully bars and restaurants are now smoke-free, but it's still surprising to see people smoking. American cigaret brands are very popular, but honestly who can afford to smoke???
Around our part of Umbria tobacco is grown, although it appears to be a different variety than what we used to see in Kentucky. A few weeks ago while taking a drive we spotted these fields of tobacco, ready for harvesting.
