So i am wondering? How do they light there coals?
maybe in pictures, nate. i rarely ever saw shisha smoked at public places where there wasn't a restaurant. it's usually at cafe's with open fire / outdoor kitchens. you'd see glowing coals where the kabobs, chicken, and shawarmas are grilling. i have seen portable coal stoves on occasion though.. something like this.

it was ~$3 for one shisha, and the coals would come all night at many places.
