Oh noes. You're enabling the terrorists by smoking hookah. Your keffiyeh is showing. ;) :)

My grandfather used to smoke hookah, though it was a bit different from this one - it had a more rigid pipe, I think.


Hi Carla, I came acros your blog from Blog Catalog. and I love your articles here.
I had been seeing hookah many times in TV but didn't know about the process of heating. and the controling of the heat would be not easy. hahah..

I would come back oftern to read more.. :) it is nice knowing you.


I LOVE your filmi geek blog. I discovered it a day or two ago-ts fantabulous. And such a good critique! I will be a regular visitor


I love hookah...melon flavored tobacco is definitely the best, they need to start making cigarettes flavored like that!

Having a hookah is spiffy indeed, all the hookah bars have gotten so darn expensive and some of them, from what I hear, serve expired shisha. Having your own is pretty sweet, I got mine last year. I've been dying to try out blueberry muffin shisha, have you had it?

Interesting Post, you should teach! Anyways, I noticed you are using instant light charcoals. You should try Coconut charcoals. They're made out of coconut shell fibers, and they burn for at leat 100 minutes with full heat! The only downside to these charcoals is the time it takes them to light... They take a couple of minutes, they're not instant. But because you have a gas burner, as I see in the pictures, it would be much easier to light them. You won't have any of that "fine powdery mess" and what's most important, you won't inhale any coal. I myself have 2 hookahs for my personal use and about 10 for my hookah catering business. Oh, and cherry flavored shisha is best when mixed with Cola flavored shisha ;D
