in the Souk of the great and ancient city of Alexandria, in one of the less-visited parts, away from the dealers in valuable carpets and finest spices, is the little shop of the trader Ali Wassaf.
Ali is a poor trader - he does not bargain properly and he does not know how to buy effectively. To the right, just inside the shabby entrance to his shop, is a tray with a mound of little pyramids. Manufactured of thin plastic, they tend to split along the seam. They are hollow and do not even have a base.
It is necessary to step outside the shop with one of these and, using the magnifying glass that all visiting archaeologists will carry, turn the little pyramid upside down. Inside, barely distinguishable from the other blemishes on the inside of the plastic, is a message.
Once deciphered, it reads "made in Taiwan".
