Seventy beauty queens from the US, France, Canada, Venezuela, Slovenia, Italy, Uruguay, Britain, the Netherlands, Costa Rica, Ireland, India and Kosovo lifted the flags of their respective homelands at the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx Panorama last week, inviting their friends via social network sites to come visit Egypt's renowned touristic and archaelogical sites.
After this event, the ladies travelled to the Red Sea’s city of Marsa Alam, Ain El-Sokhna, Alexandria and Luxor.
The beauty queens were warmly welcomed by archaeologist Ashraf Mohieddin, director general of the pyramid antiquities section at Egypt's Antiquities Ministry, together with director of Egypt's Tourism and Antiquities Police Youssef Mokhtar, director of investigations Colonel Walid Al-Sharkawi and Amal Rizk, a tourism expert with the United Nations.
Interestingly enough, this is Miss Universe Amber Bernachi’s (of Canada) fourth visit to Egypt in two years.
