The shishas here are really yum! So far we have had three nights spent in the shisha bars. We have tried double apple flavour, mint and on Liv's birthday a mix of cherry and melon flavour. Yum! They are sweet and relaxing. The next night we slept on the terrace, also known as the roof, of our hostel ...
