Hookah nights

"Love all, trust a few. Do wrong to none." - William Shakespeare
There's just something about hookah that calms me. Soothes me. I feel content with the comings and goings in my life. Maybe its the atmosphere of the place. Or the ambiance.  I don't know exactly, but there's just something about inhaling that fragrant tobacco, feeling the slight burn in your throat and lungs, then releasing it when you exhale and watching the smoke dissipate. into thin air.

I mostly enjoy this when I'm with my close friends. We talk, drink (wine for the ladies, beer for the men), eat an assortment of yummy Mediterranean dishes drink Turkish coffee in these elaborate looking espresso cups, occasionally play games, but most of all we enjoy the hookah. It's great fun.

I am so happy to be sharing these moments and memories with my friends.
