How Do You Smoke a Shisha in Abu Dhabi?

You may be wondering what you're smoking. Naturally, you can put any smokable substance into a shisha pipe at home, but commercial facilities will only provide tobacco shisha cafes in Abu Dhabi. Tobacco is mixed with molasses, glycerin, rose, grape, and other extracts. The charcoal is not in direct contact with the tobacco; a perforated metal foil separates them (though some traditionalists dispense with this). It's the only way. It's a massive piece of equipment, and painting on it with your cheeks isn't going to cut it. You've got to inhale. This is what we're doing tonight for an hour or two, and it's possible we won't do it again until next weekend or the weekend after that. Feel as guilty as you want, but enjoy yourself. Life is already far too brief.
