Hubble – Bubble

Colourful glass hubble-bubble pipes wait for customers at a coffee shop in Bahrain. These devices, also called sheesha or hookah, and even the water pipe, are traditionally used by visitors every evening all over the Arab world, often with flavoured tobacco. Though essentially a male domain, the sheesha is increasingly being used socially by women who are not normally smokers. Tough health laws in Bahrain now, however, have ensured no smoking happens in enclosed places and even if it is allowed, has to be confined to a closed room.
