Sartre rêvait d’aller en Japon depuis 1929… Il n’était qu’à 1966 qu’il fait ce voyage, avec Simone. Comme philosophe, pas comme professeur, comme il désirait quand il avait 25 ans, <3

Simone de Beauvoir, Sartre and Claude Lanzmann on a Nile cruise. In 1967, Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir visited Egypt at  the invitation of Mohamed Hassanein Heikal, then chairman and  editor-in-chief of Al-Ahram, during which they visited Aswan, Luxor and  Palestinian refugee camps in Gaza. They were received by Nasser, met  members of the country&#8217;s intellectual community, and were entertained by  writer Tawfiq al-Hakim at the Pyramids.
Beauvoir included an account of the visit in her 1972 memoir Tout compte fait:
"We had been invited to go to Egypt by Heykal, Nasser&#8217;s friend and spokesman and the editor of Al Ahram&#8230;  Dusk was falling as we landed [in Cairo]. We were welcomed by Heykal, a  short, broad-shouldered, jolly man, very brown and energetic, and by  the elderly Tawfik al-Hakim (his name means the philosopher&#8217;s success),  whose amusing Journal d&#8217;un substitute [ Diary of a Country Prosecutor ] had been published in Les Temps modernes fifteen years before [&#8230;] (Source)
