Hot off the press

15 10 2008

I have just come from the bank where after a month of weekly applications I have managed to draw 400,000 Zim dollars (about 20 US). That’s quite a lot better than the daily corporate allowance of 10,000 which they would have charged 50,000 for me to draw. The notes are new 50,000 dollar denominations. And I mean new. I can still smell the distinctive new ink smell. The quality is still the same; really poor.

Inflation was officially at 215 million percent last week which means in reality it is a lot higher – I have seen reports in the billions. Life as such still goes on though, so to see what keeps me entertained in the evenings please check out the HIFA website.
