Phat Money

Peace Corps / Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

I forgot to take a picture, but today I was walking around with 9,300 UAH (~$1,162.50). I emptied out the ATM to get this much. I needed to give Yulia the money so she could pay for our first shipment of books while she’s in Kiev this week.

I had ~15 200UAH bills, ~25 100UAH bills, 60 50UAH bills and then whatever is left made up of 20UAH bills. I wanted to throw it all in the air and take pictures as it floated down over me. I wanted to spread it out in my hands and tell people I felt like a bootlegger. I wanted to do so many things, but I was at school.
