How to travel without passport, the second
It happened again! I went to Sharm el Sheikh for a job interview (which in the end did not takeplace – long story), so when I checked out of the hotel again, the nice receptionist said goddbye, I took my bag and took the bus back to Cairo. About an hour later, I get a phone call: “your passport is still at the reception” Great! Again! I called a friend who managed to get my passport on the next bus to Cairo, so in worst case I would have had to get off the bus at the checkpoint and wait for the next bus carriing my passport. Luckily my “sleeping beauty tactics” worked again perfectly. (If you don’t know what I am talking about, have a look in the archives at the story “how to travel without a passport”). I got to cairo without having been asked once for my passport once. 2 hourslater my precious travel document arrived safely to Cairo as well.
