Re: how much do u spend ???
To get up and running - first hookah - I just spend $85 on a triple-hose Egyptian hookah. I added a diffuser. It came with tongs, a padded carrying case, 2 50g boxes of Romman, some coals and a few other things.
Seeing as how I really have problems making decisions and never had control over the shisha I was smoking, went a little crazy and bought about $75 worth of 50g boxes from various brands and flavors. We'll see how my choice went...
