After visiting Medinet Habu, we set off again on our travels, passing by the Egyptian craft shop called Caravanserai where we hoped we could buy some presents to take home. It was disappointing to find that it was closed, but our driver spoke to some of the locals and, like magic, someone appeared with the keys and opened the shop for us! Wonderful!! We crossed the wooden bridge over the irrigation canal and entered the shop, which was like Aladdin's Cave!! You need to look past the dust to see the beauty of some of the objects for sale, but there is no hassle or pressure to buy. Everything has a fixed and reasonable price and it was a pleasurable experience just to be left to wander around to choose our purchases. So, if you pass by here and find it closed, ask your driver to ask the locals and someone will come along and open up for you. You will not be disappointed!!
