Re: Cultural question for my Egyptian friends.
Yeah I knew it was called Shisha. I went into a store here recently just inquiring on the prices of some they had and they looked at me funny when I asked to see their Hookahs. LOL> Not sure where they were from so I don't know what to call it there. Yeah I had heard that about Egypt but I wanted to be sure cause I had heard it on the internet and sometimes information gets stale on the internet.
The Ethiopians admitted to not knowing much about Egyptian culture mostly it was a friend's fiancee talking about their culture. I think perhaps there is somewhat of a political problem in that instance. I just wondered if there was something along those lines that I should be aware of.
I asked him about hookahs once and he said he doesn't smoke anything, and we only had one conversation about religion. Figure I will just leave that at that.
