When in Egypt we got to go and see how Papyrus Paper is made and the paintings.

The Egyptians used this aquatic plant to create a writing sheet by peeling apart the plant's tissue-thin layers and stacking them in overlapping, crosshatched pieces to form a sheet. Despite giving us the word paper, papyrus is not a true paper.

How the ancient Egyptians made papyrus paper

In this video:
As always, we tried not to plan anything in advance for our first day in Egypt. We usually like to just explore on our own and get a feel for wherever we are. We arrived in Cairo around 11pm and by the time we got out of the airport and found our hotel it was 1am. The hotel manager was waiting to greet us and eager to chat so we ended up sitting in the lobby talking with him until almost 2:30am. He asked what our plans were and then proceeded to help us put those plans in effect. We told him we wanted to have a traditional Egyptian breakfast and then just get a feel for Cairo. We also told him that the next day we would be interested in seeing the pyramids and the national museum. We really wanted to see the museum before setting out on our Egyptian adventure so we would have some idea what we were seeing as we traveled the country. When we woke up we were surprised to find him waiting in the lobby for us. He took us to a balcony where a table was set up and he produced a home cooked traditional breakfast he brought from home. The food was all foreign to us but we enjoyed most of it. He then sat with us and explained that he arranged for us to have a driver and an Egyptologist to take us to the pyramids and museum the next day and that they were going to meet us today and take us on a free tour of Cairo today.
The first stop on our free tour was a papyrus museum/factory where we got to see how the ancient Egyptians made paper from papyrus plants and then we were set loose in the showroom full of paintings on the papyrus. We realized nothing was free but they really didn’t pressure us to buy anything. Even so we ended up buying 3 paintings. One of them we will be giving away in our 100 subscriber giveaway.
The second stop was at a government run essential oil store where we learned about the history of essential oils in Egypt and then got to sample dozens. We decided not to buy any oils as the prices here were extremely high. Even after we said No the shop manager offered us tea and sat around telling us stories about Egypt and how it has changed since the revolution.
Before returning us to the hotel our Egyptologist told us what the plan was for the next day and insisted on taking us to a place just outside of the city where we could see the pyramids from a distance. He called it a panoramic place. The view was great and had us even more excited to see them up close the next day.

We are Frank & Alyssa. The Globe Hoppers!
We have been traveling the world part time for 6 years and have decided it was time share our adventures with the world. We are both nurses in our real life with no experience making videos or vlogging. Just a love of travel and a desire to inspire others to get out of their comfort zone and explore. We are learning as we go and are looking forward to any advice we can get so feel free to leave a comment and tell us what you think. Be kind please.
After the last year of working as nurses in the states we decided it was time to dust off our passports and hit the road again. We choose Egypt as our first destination on this trip and spent a month traveling around getting footage we hoped to turn into fun videos. From Egypt we made a quick stop back in the states before heading to quarantine in Thailand where we are currently trying to learn how to edit videos. Stick around as we promise to get better at not only editing but at telling a story.
To learn more about us and our prior travels check out our blogs and to find out more on how we plan to pay it forward to those hit hardest by the pandemic go to our website.
Thanks for your patience and encouragement

Egypt 1982 super 8mm film part 3 of 3 test

A test transfer, playing with the frame rate adjustment on the fly. Using a Keystone 2500 projector, and a Lumix FH-1 camera, shot on a piece of paper. I need a better 1080 camera (or more!) that I can manually focus. Maybe one that has a video output so I can focus on my TV... It's hard to make the old point and shoot work for this! The frame rate kept creeping back and forth, making me need to adjust the projector on the fly several times, but my little camera's screen is cracked so I could barely see what I was doing... Will do better later on!

This is a reel of super 8mm film that I was given. The box has a handwritten label that says Egypt 1982. It's an 8 inch reel that's not quite full, and it fills the 7 inch take up reel all the way to the edge! Probably about 25 minutes or so of footage, depending on how fast you play it! hahaha! Lots of sights, but no sounds.

So, my camera can only shoot approximately 2gb of video before it needs to stop and save, so when it gave out, I stopped the film, backed it up a little bit, and restarted the camera, so there;s a bit of overlap from the first segment. I'd really like to try this with a real camera that can control focus, white balance, and other parameters, and is 1080 hires and not just 720 with blotches in the picture! Got one I could use for a week or so? Get in touch!!!!

This is the last part of this long reel of film, transferred in parts because of limitations of my cheezy camera.

Papyrus (pronounced /pəˈpaɪrəs/) is a thick paper-like material produced from the pith of the papyrus plant, Cyperus papyrus,[1] a wetland sedge that was once abundant in the Nile Delta of Egypt.

Papyrus usually grow 23 meters (59 ft) tall. Papyrus is first known to have been used in ancient Egypt (at least as far back as the First dynasty), but it was also used throughout the Mediterranean region. Ancient Egypt used this plant for boats, mattresses, mats, and paper.

Papyrus was first manufactured in Egypt as far back as the third millennium BC.[2] In the first centuries BC and AD, papyrus scrolls gained a rival as a writing surface in the form of parchment, which was prepared from animal skins.[3] Sheets of parchment were folded to form quires from which book-form codices were fashioned. Early Christian writers soon adopted the codex form, and in the Græco-Roman world it became common to cut sheets from papyrus rolls in order to form codices.

Codices were an improvement on the papyrus scroll as the papyrus was not strong enough to fold without cracking and a long roll, or scroll, was required to create large volume texts. Papyrus had the advantage of being relatively cheap and easy to produce, but it was fragile and susceptible to both moisture and excessive dryness. Unless the papyrus was of good quality, the writing surface was irregular, and the range of media that could be used was also limited.

By CE 800 the use of parchment and vellum had replaced papyrus in many areas, though its use in Egypt continued until it was replaced by more inexpensive paper introduced by Arabs. The reasons for this switch include the significantly higher durability of the hide-derived materials, particularly in moist climates, and the fact that they can be manufactured anywhere. The latest certain dates for the use of papyrus are 1057 for a papal decree (typically conservative, all papal bulls were on papyrus until 1022), under Pope Victor II,[4] and 1087 for an Arabic document. Papyrus was used as late as the 1100s in the Byzantine Empire, but there are no surviving examples. Although its uses had transferred to parchment, papyrus therefore just overlapped with the use of paper in Europe, which began in the 11th century.

The word for the material papyrus is also used to designate documents written on sheets of it, often rolled up into scrolls. The plural for such documents is papyri. Historical papyri are given identifying names—generally the name of the discoverer, first owner or institution where it is kept—and numbered, such as Papyrus Harris I. Often an abbreviated form is used such as pHarris I.
