I’VE GOT READERS!

Thanks to Statcounter, I can keep track of where this blog is being read. To my surprise, it seems to have attracted some attention in a number of places around the world:

Pointers to readers around the world

It is gratifying to know there are a few people who find his review of my past life interesting.

THAI CURRENCY

Thai currency in use when I was there was beautifully engraved (in England).

1 Baht front & obv

One of these in those days was about 20 US cents

5 Baht front

So this beauty was worth about a dollar

10 Baht front

Ten Baht

20 Baht front

The obverse of all bills to 20 was the same

100 Baht front

But the obverse of the 100 Baht note was different

100 Baht obv

This appears to be the Royal Barge

As is often the case in foreign countries, the bills were all different sizes, more or less as indicated above.

In the next page, I shall return to my narrative, traveling from Phuket to Trang.
