    Buying Papyrus by Saladinos

    When going to most touristic sites you will be followed and surrounded by lots of men offering you to buy their original papyrus papers. It is not an original papyrus they are liers.

    Unique Suggestions: At Least Do This:
    If he is offering you a papyrus as an original one tell him No this is not Original and that you are the brother of picaso or leonardo Da vinchi and that you cant be decieved by this.
    If you are stuck by his hassle then give him a 3-5 egyptian pounds (less than 1 dollar). and ask him to give you the papyrus.

    Fun Alternatives: Dont buy papyrus from the streets cause they are not for real but a sketchy.

    There are special places to buy them from. ask you tour operator.
