Went to the HSBC yesterday, the exchange rate was 19.5, a fact that I was quite happy with. When the old exchange rate hovered around 11/11.5Le to the £ I was content with that. As I was about to fill in the withdrawal amount I had a thought that maybe this higher rate could work to my advantage. So fully expecting to take the long haul out next February under the new visa regulations I withdrew enough to give me 6,000Le for that flight, hopefully this will cover the cost increases, [5,00Le return this year] Also I stocked up on a months supply of cat needs, bought her that can not be named a new pair of jeans as she has decided to join the Desert Peaches on their Monday mornings walks on the West bank,140Le, her family a large bag of Nido full cream milk powder that they love, 117Le, and full box of Kit Kats for me :up The money left equates to what I would of got with an exchange rate of 11.2Le. That money will be used for materials for my next two projects at home next year. All in all a good deal me thinks.

Dusak makes a wise move, the effects of devaluation of a currency usually takes two or months to work its way through to the retail sector, though I am sure he doesn't need me to tell him that in Luxor, the period of time is much, much shorter.
