The guide took us to the Papyrus Institute a d deposited us for a 5 minute explanation followed by pressure sales to buy. Then we went to a jeweler where again we were cornered to buy. When she asked a out going to a cotton shop we said no. At that point she said her mother lived in the area and got out of the car. The driver brought us back to the hotel a d then insisted on a big tip. He got a reasonable one.
