I have had some interesting experiences in my travels, some scary and some quite funny. For example I remember when entering Mozambique from South Africa the border agent told me my passport was missing pages. After assuring him I had all appropriate visas and permission to enter Mozambique he still sent me away stating my passport was missing pages.

After about an hour of trying to figure out what the problem was a local informed me the pages that were missing were in fact South African Rands. I laughed at myself for not figuring that one out immediately. Africa teaches you in short order that money is key to an easy transaction with a person of authority.

Needless to say from that moment forward I have never had a problem with entry into any African country. My passport always includes extra pages and once my "extra pages" earned me an extension on my tourist visa when entering South Africa from Botswana.
