Shopping in Egypt
As a souvenir in Egypt, you can buy stone (basalt, granite or alabaster) figurines of the ancient Egyptian gods, hookah ("Shisha"), Papyrus.
In the resort areas, the vast majority of shops and shops do not have fixed prices.
When buying stone statuettes you need to fear fakes "under a stone" from painted gypsum. To check, you can rack the bottom of the statuette – painted gypsum will give itself a white scratch.
When buying hookah ("Shishi") It should be borne in mind that often come across "souvenir" Shisha, to use in direct appointment almost impossible.
Attentive to be and when purchasing papyrus. Cheap banana stamping on poor-quality and short-lived materials are really worth 1-3 Egyptian pounds. High-quality papyrus (it can be found on the neat picture execution technique and for the fact that it can be cooled without the least harm and smith) will cost about 10-20 Egyptian pounds.
