Rabat-the capital city of Morocco! I can say it’s definitely not the nicest town to be sticking around too much! However, if you want to do Trans-Africa, there’s no way you will not be spending weeks over there because you can find almost all West African Embassies there:)

So, yesterday when I arrived Rabat, I immediately went to Guinea Embassy to apply for a visa. Luckily I have this Girl -Martina who was born in Cameroon(but grew up in London) to go with me! Since she speak French, it’s a lot easier for us to talk to communicate with people over there! However, the Drama started there…….

We started to look for hotel right after we handed in our passports to apply for the visas. At first we found a SUPER NICE HOTEL but the price is almost $250/night. S0, I guess you all know we then tried to look for a cheaper one and we finally found one in the city center:) Moroccan are really, whenever we tried to ask them for a room they always said it’s full at the very beginning! Probably they thought we are of a really funny combination-one Asian and one Black girl!! Anyway, they gave us a room and we took showers and charged our electronics right away. After that, we wanted to get something to eat and walk around town.

However when we get down to the lobby, the “receptionist” asked us for passports! We told them we didn’t have them because we gave the passports to the embassies! Then, he shake his head and said no no no, we couldn’t stay here! Since I actually brought my HK and UK passports with me(I used my American passport to travel), I tried to convince him to accept that passport but he refused because there’s NO ENTRY STAMP ON IT!. Sigh..we really do not know what to do. He said we have to leave or he will call the police!! He refused to let us stay even we tried to pay him more. He said the police will come every night to check on the hotel!! Sadly, we have no choice but to leave the hotel!!!. Well, at least we had a shower and we charged some of our electronics:P

So, at the end of the day, we ended up spending the whole night at the lobby and today we finally get our passports back! YEA!!!!!! However, there’s 2 more visas to go but we will probably stay at the same hotel over and over again:P Hopefully there won’t be much surprise going on later. Until then, enjoy the funny photos I took previously:) Cheers

  2. Dearest Tammy,
    What a fate! Legally nobody has the right to take your passport but we’ve traveled to certain places where the DEMANDED them as well, in order we could spend the night. Not the greatest feeling. Let’s hope you get all your Visa cleared. That at least is a good start for your Africa trip.
    Hugs to you and thanks for the humor in your pictures; always keep a positive attitude and laugh…

  3. Now I have understand because this isn’t the nicest town for you! I love your travel stories ;)!

  18. Oh gosh, I hope everything else works out to a better time. I have found it easier in some places to travel with other passports if you hold them. Happy weekend dear.

  19. Hi sweety, i was in Rabat earlier this year and stayed at the Golden Tulip Hotel, Close to the waterfront, it was quite nice if you want to try there? I remember they can be quite picky about having your passport on you if you want to make a booking…hope it all gets sorted out. Love your vibrant outfit, you fit in with the colourful culture!

  27. i like you so much tammy, you are so friendly and accommodating!!! *sigh* its a pity you weren’t given a room to stay just because you had no passport with you, omg!!! some countries are so cruel, this can never- ever ever happen in the uk, they even said they were gonna call the police, heady me!!! i would have allowed them and cause a scene lol, silly me sometimes i love to prove i have a right lol. thank goodness you both got your passport back, you imagine, how you can feel like a motherless child in a motherless home in some countries, atleast you enjoyed a bit of morroco looooooooooool.

  28. Morocco is on my list, I’m so fascinated with this country!! Great pics as always hun!
