Minister of Tourism and Antiques Khaled Al-Anani took Ms. Gloria Walker Sunday morning in a tour as they visited the Sphinx, which was opened especially for her.
Al-Anani thanked the American lady for her extraordinary love for Egypt and its ancient civilization, assuring her that this visit would provide her with positive energy and help her recover quickly.
On her part, Walker asserted that she was warmly welcomed by Al-Anani, expressing gratitude for his great efforts in fulfilling her lifelong dream to visit Egypt and watch the pyramids of Giza with her family.
She insisted on standing from her chair to take a souvenir photo of her with the Great Sphinx.
During the tour, the minister asked her whether she would visit Upper Egypt, to which she replied that her tourism program did not include this.
The minister also invited her to visit Luxor and enjoy seeing the unique Egyptian monuments, which would give her an opportunity to know more about the ancient civilization.
At the end of their encounter, he gave her a clone to the goddess Maat, the goddess of justice, to put it in her home in Philadelphia, as a reminder of her visit to Egypt.
Furthermore, the minister wished her an enjoyable trip during which she would enjoy the beautiful beaches, warm sun and pleasant atmosphere, as well as the archaeological sites.
Ms. Gloria Walker and her family’s trip will last a week, including a visit to major tourist and archaeological sites in the Cairo and South Sinai governorates.
