Default Back to Iraq!

I arrived here at Camp Victory yesterday morning. It is HOT HOT HOT. I still have jet-lag, as well. At least the food is tolerable. I was here last in 2008, at Camp Taji. I got ill, and I had to get some medical treatment in the USA. I gave away all of my hookahs and supplies, and 10 kilos of tobacco. The Iraqi men I worked with, were all grateful.

I will be here in Iraq for about 90 days, then I will be transferred up to Afghanistan. I checked out the hookahs for sale at the local bazaar. They are all "crap". I find it ironic, that here in the middle of the Arab world, the hookahs are all lousy. I am going to get on the web, and get some items sent to me in the APO mail.

If there are any hookah smokers in the Camp Victory or VBC (Victory Base Complex) area, who would like to meet up for a smoke, please email or PM me.

Hey Charles, I made it back from Afghanistan and I remember you said you had an order coming from MNH, let me know if you need anything and I will send it over.

Well to be fair you're in Iraq...honestly youre not going to get the best selection of hookahs there at any point.

In Syria and Egypt you can find the right markets to get great hookahs and tobaccos and coals.

Not too surprised at Qatar's selection, I bet they have a lot of chinese crap there.

..I don't know why you'd expect any amazing hookahs in a post war Iraq, i mean sure it's the middle east but if you go to Washington you aren't going to find any top end Barbecue restaurants.
