    i know that there are always traps in all places but i have many funny traps some of them i remember and the other i could not remember because i was a kid.
    1- in giza zoo my parents put a caroot on my head to make this giraff eat it from my head.
    2-when i was in a fantasy land i ride a warm and i thought that this warm moves slowly but i discovered that it was very mad.
    3-when i celebrated of my first birthday this musical team were singing to me.

    Egyptians, if offered...

    Egyptians, if offered anything, will refuse the first invitation which is customary. Therefore (unless you're dealing with Egyptians used to Western frankness) you should do the same. If the offer is from the heart and not just politeness, it will be repeated. If you're invited into a home, especially in small villages, and have to refuse, the householder will often press for a promise from you to visit in the future, usually for a meal. If you make such a promise, keep it, for having foreign guests is often considered a social coup. If you fail to arrive, your would-be host will be humiliated. To repay invitations, you may host a dinner in a restaurant, a common practice.

    Some view the Khan al-Khalili as a tourist trap because of all the shops catering to tourists. But you can find a few cool items in the shops and it's interesting for the atmosphere, not to mention the colourful locals.
