THE GREATEST TOBACCO TALK-SHOW ON EARTH GOES TO SEA IN 2012!

It started with the success of Rio de Janero in 2008. In 2010 it moved to Bangalore, where it exceeded all expectations. Now the GTNF comes to Europe, to the splendid port city of Antwerp. City of Rubens, Van Dyck, diamonds, chocolate, beer, moules and frites. And soon the embarkation point for the greatest Tobacco Talk-Show on earth 2012.

  4. Hm, I may go there...

    In the same time I am planning a crusade against the smoking ban with my action ship in the Belgian waters. Sounds perfect if this could be combined.
