Good on you Stratos Vasillikos
In Athens we stayed at the 'Hotel Parthenon' a part of the Aerotel group, an Athens hotel chain (they have 3). In the foyer they have this charming photo of the founder Mr Stratos Vasillikos. Stratos is obviously a well dressed urbane man. I love this photo as I can't think of any person proudly displaying a photo of themselves smoking in a public place. I don't smoke never have and never will, however it pains me to see how smokers are treated with the disdain reserved for child molesters. Good on you Stratos (unfortunately he died in 2002 aged 57, I hope it wasn't lung cancer).
