A big stack of money

One of our National Monitors needed US dollars (judging by the amount, probably for a air ticket), and since I was running a little short on Sudanese pounds I offered to do the exchange at the official rate...
So he got 12 bills, I got 82... a stack an inch thick when compressed.
Cash may be King in Sudan, but I do miss being able to simply swipe my card while shopping.
