The Egyptian government «advertised» its excursion opportunities by personally inviting Elon Musk, the billionaire and founder of Space X, to visit the Great Pyramids of Giza.
The reason for this was a statement on Twitter, where Musk has 37.5 million subscribers, that the Pyramids of Egypt were built by «aliens». «The aliens built the pyramids, obviously,» Musk said, and the post got over half a million likes.
However, Egypt did not like this statement — it contradicts classical archaeological data. As a result, the billionaire was sent a personal letter by the ex-Minister of Tourism, now the Minister of International Cooperation of Egypt, Rania al-Mashat. “I follow your work with great admiration. I invite you and Space X to Egypt — to study visually how the pyramids were built, as well as to check the tombs of the pyramid builders, ”the letter said.
How Elon Musk reacted to the invitation has not yet been specified.
Meanwhile, tourism in the resorts of Egypt is fixing a recovery — prices have gone up for the first time since May, and hotels in Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh are full, and almost completely. According to the Red Sea Hotels Association, hotels were fully booked with a maximum occupancy rate of 50%. Mostly local tourists choose Hurghada.
