So Many Zeros!!!

Got to be on your toes here.  There are ever emerging ways in which some Viets will try to rip off the tourist, or the expats for that matter.  The majority of Vietnamese people are honest and hard working but unfortunately there are some that give this wonderful country a bad name.  As I do not drive here, I have no option to go by taxi to the school.  Of late I have been warned that some taxi drivers are trying to slip "ceremonial" money into unsuspecting tourists change.  This "monopoly" money is used in temples where it is burned during ceremonies.  Their ingenuity never ceases to amaze me.  Try to rip me off at your own peril!!!

Fake!  With so many zeros it's easy for people not used to the currency to get confused.
