    Ive found some money...

    Today we found 1000 Ugandan Shillings in the playground! I had dizzy thoughts of what I could spend it on, new TV, deposit on a car or a top weekend out?

    So off I went to XE to do a conversion and found out what it was worth....


    32p

    It'll be worth less than that by now. Isn't there hyper-inflation in Uganda?!

    We have to feed ourselves somehow. Speaking of which, and looking at the time, I better get out there and salvage what's left from break before the kids descend for lunch...

    That's ok then. I thought there must be a simple explanation for it

    That would be zimbabwe, uganda is very stable. That 1000 shillings will get you a cold beer or a dinner in Uganda!

    Interestingly, it's illegal to take shillings out of uganda.

    That's what I thought, it's a closed currency isn't it? A lot of places operate like this but people don't realise. We got in trouble coming back from Tunisia a few years ago with what amounted to some spare change that we hadn't managed to spend.
