I just make a good color photo copy of mine and bring it with me. (I got stopped at a police check point in Colombia a few years ago and just showed them that, as I left the original in the hotel safe, as was sent on my way no prob). Plus I will scan my passport and email it to myself. That way if all else fails and I have to I can just go to an embassy and have them log on and get my email and there is a copy of my passport on the cloud.
