Re: Cultural question for my Egyptian friends.
Cool. No the only reason I ask is because I have several Ethiopian friends who seem to view it not as a rite but as more a part of that culture. Interestingly enough though it seems to be a fairly new development there. It might even be localized there or more to the point localized with a few that live here. I know it isn't a religious thing, obviously but a cultural thing. Good to know there aren't any cultural things to worry about. I thought it was odd because from what I have read of Egypt one of the main reasons they became one of the major hubs of Hookahs was because it was so universal there.
Interesting history there. Thanks.
