Overpriced Papyrus Shop

On the way to Pyramids of Giza, we had been dropped at Egypt Papyrus Museum. It was not a museum, instead a shop that sells papyrus and pays commission to the those who brought us there, and that's our tour guide. They claimed their papyrus was real, but I am not too sure about that. To be safe, buy at the shop introduced by guide books.

Out of convenient, I did spent EGP 60 to buy 2 pieces small papyrus. Luckily too, as we hardly have any time during the rest of the trip to do serious shopping.
