I'm not a big smoker, but going down to the cafe in front of my apartment for a shisha is great. For those of you deprived folks who don't know what shisha is, let me explain. Shisha is a moist, flavored tobacco that is smoked from a shisha pipe or "bong" and is quite relaxing until you try to fall asleep. While you are smoking it and chatting with your friends, time goes very quickly which explains why I see people still sitting at the cafes at 5:30 on a Friday morning.

I don't smoke shisha very often, but when I do, I drink Turkish coffee which might explain the difficulty sleeping. Plenty of women can be seen puffing along on on a shisha pipe. Even friends who don't normally smoke have smoked while here and became instantly addicted. If you get the chance, try it, you'll like it. Don't be afraid. (If you do want to try it, here is a link to some pipes. Unless you're chicken.)
