Photographer's Note

No, no, not that kind--the hookah is the water pipe the man is smoking. These have had a resurgence of popularity in Egypt (and maybe elsewhere?) in recent years. The most common substance smoked is fruit-flavored tobacco. Here a shopkeeper in one of the back alleys of Cairo (not far from Khan el Khalili market) enjoys a break while awaiting customers for his spices.
