Taking a Break: The Many Sheesha Moments of Ashok

As I mentioned before, smoking sheesha (water pipe) became Ashok's favorite hobby, which he indulged in at least once a day. I thought it would be funny to show some of the more interesting places where he managed to get a sheesha in:

Where it all started - at El Fishawi Cafe in Cairo, Egypt:

At our hotel in Luxor, while working on his computer:

He even convinced the internet cafe owner to bring in the sheesha from next door while we used the internet:

Smoking after breakfast on the beach in Nuwiba before heading to the terminal for the ferry to Jordan... little did we know how much waiting we had ahead of us:

What better way to watch the sunset by the Dead Sea? (note he's sporting his new Jordanian shmagh mhadab (scarf)

Tea Garden in Istanbul, Turkey.... maybe we can make our living room look like this:

In Istanbul, smoking Nargile (Turkish name for water pipe) is always accompanied by backgammon playing. Too bad we never picked it up:

As all good things must come to an end, Ashok's sheesha days came to an end when we left Turkey. That is, until we get back to New York and he can set up his very own. Now he's got a new use for the charcoal at the end of our BBQs.
