Only a pipe distinguishes man from beast
Today I went to a tobaccoist in Valletta and bought my first pipe (an olive wood Maltese pipe) together with a pouch of black cavendish vanilla flavoured tobacco. I was contemplating to buy a pipe for the past two years, and finally my mate gave me a sense of courage by illustrating me how to enjoy smoking the pipe. I will now have a cold shower, go by the seaside with the bike and smoke my first pipe (I know it won't be pleasant for the first couple of weeks or more as a new pipe needs to 'break in')...Next time I will also bring my friend Jack with me to balance the taste...
PS: Before making any false ideas, the picture just shows me posing by the Sherlock Holmes museum in London!
