Friday, February 1
We tried to get someone to take us to exchange money right from the beginning, but no one would do it. HL said Mei-Jen told us to use a jeweler instead of a bank to get a better rate. After waiting for a few days, HL walked to the bank across the street from the pharmacy. They would not take our money, since it was too new. They don’t want the new style bills. On our way to the market on today, Dad stopped in another bank and was turned away again. As we made our way down the alley, a bank employee came running up and took Dad to a jeweler on the other side of the market place. Exchanging there was quick and easy.
