Cheap trip

I've got rather more euros than I thought I had - about 100 of the things, if you count the 20-euro note with quite a big chunk ripped out of it that I doubt I'll have the nerve to try to spend. Incidentally, have you ever noticed that 100-fils coins from Bahrain look quite a lot like 1-euro coins? It can be confusing if you're a globetrotter like me. Perhaps I'll try to pass off those fils as euros, seeing as I don't seem likely to be going back to Bahrain now. But what can I do with those Brazilian reais I brought back with me even though you can't change them outside Brazil on the grounds that I'd probably be going back there some day?

Sorry, I'm just showing off about all the places I've been. I'll stop now.

I've also got dollars, you know.

I've never seen a Euro. I expected them to be much bigger. I do have a few hundred Fils though which, I am prepared to swap for that note :-)
