What Cardinals Smoke in St. Peter's Square

Hecho en Cuba.

A pipe from Asia Minor where St. Paul the Apostle was born and tobacco from the Catholic island discovered by the Admiral, Christopher Columbus, for the Catholic sovereigns Ferdinand and Isabel.

This summer yours truly read The Four Voyages by Christopher Columbus (Penguin Books); and his old log-book is a fabulous read!

  1. I have a pipe exactly the same as that, a great smoke from Turkey. Frater A.
