We are stopped at many police checkpoints where my passport is scrutinized. Just as well I have it with me, and not merely the photocopy, since one foreigner was recently arrested when he only had the copy. He was taken to the police station and held pending someone bringing his passport from the hotel. It was a Friday, the person with the keys to the hotel safe was away for the weekend – which the guy then spent in a prison cell, leaving the country in disgust when he was finally released on the Monday and swearing never to come back.
