Default equipment question

my brother is overseas in Iraq and has recently informed me that the gift he got me was a hookah this will be my first hookah. i was wondering if any one might know what style of hookah this might be. all i know of detail wise is he is quite close to Baghdad and i believe it was something like a street vendor or the like where he purchased it. I've done some research and am guessing it will most likely be Iranian in style. secondly if it is not a glass bottom will that have any impact on the flavor of the shisha. thanks for the help in advance

we would need pics to be sure but its most likely an Egyptian style hookah as far as i know it not having a glass base wouldn't affect the flavor and when u get pics we wanna see lol

I think its really hard to say...you could end up with egyptian, turkish, iranian, syrian...or even a mogul style hookah....they;re probably all available in the general area.

Someone with more experience out there might know better what he most likely picked up...maybe Hajo or someone >.> Hajo just seems to have all the answers to hard questions :P

usually a lot of the easily accessible vendors on the street are not that great of quality, not horrid but not great. its probably like an egyptian style hookah and will probably smoke fine.

as to the glass vs acrylic base, i would bet it will be glass but if it is not it should be fine, i have an acrylic base mya and it smokes the same.

You have an equal chance of getting something nice and something ok. Anything it is should still smoke nicely and it is a great gift. Once you get some pictures let us know and we can give you some more help.

I'm sure you'll get something decent, especially for your first one. You'll probably be a lot better off then those of us whose first hookah was downright shitty. Post some pics when you get it, I'd be interested to see what he came up with!
