A Letter to the Editor of the FT

Ungursun buten sainii FT-iin dugaar deerees iim zahidal olov :P

From Mr Paul Surtees.

Sir, Your correspondent Dietmar Klein (Letters, October 24) commented on the necessity to take barrow-loads of banknotes to be weighed at pre-war German banks.

Only a few years ago, I had a similar experience when living in Ulan Bator in Mongolia. Changing a few hundred pounds into the local currency, tugrik, I was astonished to be given two large plastic bags to contain the Mongolian currency. The bank only had notes of small denomination.

To make it the more disconcerting, these bags that I carried on to the street were transparent! On the other hand, the driver of a taxi that I hastily caught was very pleased to accept a single US dollar as the fare.

I see that a million tugrik are now worth about *425, so it seems that their inflation, sadly, continues apace.

Paul Surtees,
Hong Kong

одоо яахав дээ үнэн л юм чинь

саяхан банкнаас зээл аваад, авсан мөнгөнийхөө талыг гаргуулсан чинь бас яасан баахан боодол юмнууд.
