Default Re: Egypt-Hookah Expedition

I have lived in the Arab world for three years, and I have never visited Egypt. When I lived in Saudi Arabia, most of the hookah stuff and tobacco I found was "crap". When I was at Tall'Afar (Iraq), there was a Turkish shop, and all the hookahs and tobacco and coals he sold were below "crap"level, I bought nothing from them.

I encourage you to check with some Americans/Brits when you are in Cairo, and get their advice. Also- check with the security people at the US embassy, for advice on which districts to avoid.
