Hi guys, I haven't found the video on Youtube itself. Pls fix it. I found this site only yesterday, I watched all the videos, and all are great, I was very excited to see a new one. I was thinking a lot before too, how the life goes on in Baghdad. I'm so sorry of everything that happened there. My heart is with you, from Hungary.

Heh! I love to smoke hookahs, unfortunately I am forced to leave the US and go to Canada to smoke them, because only 21 and over clubs have them! I don't think anyone blames you there though, it's a very relaxing thing!

Hahahaha. You just keep saying"Hubbly Bubbly- its my favourite thing. I like to smoke it every day" over and over!

LOL! ... Hubbly Bubbly sounds like a brand name for gum. OK, so tell us more about shisha. Does the smoke have a flavor? Do you inhale and hold in your lungs or just in your mouth? Can you blow rings?

Hey evrybody... I'm a girl from Germany and just wanted to tell you how much I'm thankful for those who iniciated this really wonderfull project! I think it's so important to get to know, what's going on there in the Iraq and it really makes me so sad to see what those innocent people have to cope with everyday!!! It's just horrible! I hope the best for all those innocent and may God bless them and their country. I truly hope that they can live a better life, soon. Some people asked me, whether this project is real or just a fake? I mean I'm convinced, that this is a real project, but could you please assure me someway? That would be great! All the best!!!!

People here (in the US) usually call them "hookahs" if they even know what they are. I own one that I haven't used in months, but hookahs are great. Especially banana flavored shisha, that's my favorite.

...says, Karenne from Chat the Planet. This project; video's; people are all very very real. Check out Chat the Planet's website and the bios of the team that brought this project to life (they are here on the Hometown Baghdad site). Also, the foundations that funded the project. We are real. A small, but very dedicated team of people who want help build bridges between people and inspire empathy around the world. Thank you for your kind words; for "getting it"; and taking the time to tell us. Help spread the word!
