It is interesting to come to another country and try to understand the local currency. It has taken me a week or so to get into the mode of using the thousands needed to buy an item! The Mongolian Tugrik or MNT is colourful and range from notes of 10, 20, 50, 100, 500, 1,000, 10,000 to 20,000. There are no coins used so the wallet is more bulky than heavy. The average price of a cappuccino seems to be 4,500 although I have paid 6,000. The banana bread that came with this was 2,000 and it was more like 4 Australian slices, in fact a huge chunk! Looks like I will be eating more cake.
