Greetings!

Greetings! It has been ages since I last updated this blogsite even though my main one is updated frequently. The main reasons were that there have been too many sad passings, my uncle, my aunty, my mother-in-law and a few others in the space of a short few weeks. I thought I will take a break. However when I wanted to start again, guess what? I can't remember the password to this blogsite. It took me quite a few attempts before being able to get in. But here I am.

Over the last few months, I have traveled a fair bit too. Let me see. I have been to Bangkok, London and Rio de Janeiro with stopovers in Dubai, Paris and Singapore. It has been that hectic. I have managed to acquire lots of currency notes during my travels but most importantly I have managed to acquire quite a good collection of postcards as well from ebay. It has been that busy!

Let me start with the Brazilian Reais. I have never actualy seen what the Brazilian currency look like until I exchanged British Pounds for Reais in London. That's when I began seeing it. The 100 Reais notes is the highest value note of the current Brazilian series. The others are 2 Reais, 5 Reais, 10 Reais, 20 Reais and 50 Reais. There used to be a 1 Real note but that has gone the dodo, so you only get 1 reais round coin.

I tried searching for an antique dealer. Dealers are easier to deal with. Unfortunately I could not find one in Rio. But our driver managed to acquire some old notes and sell them to me. I tried buying the rest on ebay and found that it is almost a daunting task. Brazilian currencies depreciate so fast that they keep coming up with new currenies.

I will share the other stuffs sometimes in the future.
