A shop assistant peels the stem of a papyrus plant during a demonstration of making papyrus at a souvenir shop in Giza, Egypt, on Oct. 20, 2018. Made from papyrus plant stems, the papyrus was used for writing and drawing on by ancient Egyptians thousands years ago. Nowadays, with the ancient Egyptian writings and Pharaonic drawings, papyrus has always been an interesting souvenir bought by tourists in Egypt. (Xinhua/Meng Tao)
