These colorful glass hookah water pipes sit in the window of a small shop that sells everything one needs to smoke “Hubbly Bubbly” at home, from the aromatic fruity flavored moist tobaccos, to the fancy velvet hoses and wooden mouthpieces. Also called Sheesha here in Saudi Arabia, hookah pipes are wildly popular. There are hookah shops almost on every block! Many restaurants have areas where both men and women can enjoy smoking hookahs. Several that I’ve been to offer outdoor lounge areas to accommodate these smokers. I have tried it myself and it makes me feel light headed and nauseous!
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
