Hedge Funds

Some readers may be wondering about the money situation over here. It’s not as straightforward as you might think.

Of course, we pay nothing for our lodging or our meals, or the voluminous amount of bottled water we drink every day, or the gym. There are no movie theaters or bars. So, in fact, there’s not a huge volume of money changing hands. None of the local merchants (or tha vendors at the market) take credit cards or checks, for example. So cash is king. There are two ATM machines (and one government ATM-like device for service personnel to access their pay accounts — a real improvement over the old paymaster routine).

However, we don’t have or use coins. Instead we use Pogs (See the Military Uses section).

  1. Ah yes, I remember when my kids were into pogs…fun to think the military still uses them!
