AAAhhhh! Smoking chicha is one of the pleasures of Tunisia!
Chicha, Narguileh, Hookah. . . all these words (depending on the region or country where we are) refer to the waterpipe used to smoke a tobacco called "tumbak" which is a special tobacco, different from our "normal tobacco". You can find a chicha in almost all the tunisian houses and caffes maures. If you are a woman and dont have tunisian friends to invite you to smoke chicha its better to look for a touristic place: "arab people have their traditions!"

Take your time while smoking chicha. . . its a moment for relax!
And please. . . dont use the coal of the chicha to light your cigarrette. . . its very impolite :-)))

Smoking chicha costs between 1,5-3 DT (in a touristic place) depending on the flavour
