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:)
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
