Show Me the Money

We've been told we must take new money with us to Africa . . . it can't have ink marks, be torn, or defaced. They just won't take it in Kenya or Tanzania. We've discovered that banks do not have many new bills of the denomination we needed. After going to several banks we finally found one willing to hunt through their cash for a few "good ones."

We've learned one thing in preparing for this trip. There are some surprising challenges each step of the way. We'll be better off because of them . . . and do appreciate the counsel of those who have gone before us.
