In the 1960s the dramatic, ancient Pharaonic temple Abu Simbel was threatened by the rising waters blocked by the new Aswan High Dam. First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy provided crucial support for the mammoth rescue project. Without her help, Abu Simbel might have been lost. Times change, leaders come and go, but some acts of support and generosity are remembered through the decades. First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy loved Egypt, and Egypt still loves her.

[...] What an incredible trip it was! It all went by in such a blur. We've fallen in love with Istanbul, and the Arena Hotel. The dining staff in the hotel restaurant were one of the fondest memories if that city. Egypt left us with a feeling of awe. So much history, so much to see, such friendly people we met. Jordan was such a change from Egypt, and our driver there, Nahzee, really made our stay there perfect. He was a real delight. Thank you for all your effort to ensure our trip was one we'd always remember. This was certainly the trip of a lifetime, and to add extra sweetness, all of our friends and family are jealous of the great time we had. We couldn't have done it without you!
