Before I leave for Burma/Myanmar tomorrow I thought I would
pass on one last tip. I always take a currency converter
'cheat sheet' on these trips, mainly because I can't get my
head around all the huge numbers. I like the Oanda FX
cheat sheet at http://www.oanda.com Being useless with
numbers I print out for e.g.. Canadian to Burma Kyat then
reverse the table to Kyat to Canadian $. I cut them out,
paste back to back and have them laminated to carry
everywhere for the duration. For this trip Canadian $
equals 31.77 Thai Baht, 3011.33 Cambodian Riel, 6166.34 Lao
Kip and 5.06 Burmese Kyat. Is it any wonder I get confused?
So it's goodbye from me for approximately 4 months.
Good luck with the photo contest.
