St. James the Patron of Nicotine?


I loved this.

Here's a happy old fellow who hangs out in the square in front of Santiago Del Compostello. Dressed like St. James the Apostle, he poses for pictures with the tourists for tips.

I just loved catching him on a cigarette break in full apostolic pilgrimage regalia.

What is it with Europeans and smoking btw? Didn't they get the cancer memo? Every where one looks in Europe, young and old can be seen sucking on cigarettes with cel phones pressed to their ears.

Thanks God St. James didn't get a call while I was watching him. That would have totally ruined my day.
