This time he wants miniature fan

When I was in Cairo, the Claridge Hotel owner wanted to buy my mobile phone. Now in Luxor, the Oases Hotel owner wanted to buy my miniature electrical fan that I used to cool the intense heat for EGP 10. I denied and he kept haggled with me until I had to promise him to bring him one if I have friends that come to Egypt. I probably will not do that since I don't want my friends, if any of them visit Egypt, to fall into Luxor West Bank tout. Finally, he took a pen. I had prepared a few pen to 'give away' after reading somewhere about it that even a pen can make Eygptian happy.
