Iconic American actor Will Smith posted a thank you note to Egypt on his facebook page, as he and his family concluded a short visit to the country on Monday.  

Smith gave his final farewell to Egypt saying “Thanks for the love, Egypt, I shall return.” His post was accompanied by a few photos taken in Egypt.

During his stay, Smith visited the Giza Plateau and met with renowned archaeologist Zahi Hawass, who took them on a tour of the Sphinx and inside the Great Khufu Pyramid.

Smith and Hawass have been good friends since 2006 when they were selected among Time magazine's top 100 men and women whose power, talent or moral example is transforming the world.
