areinstein has indicated that this thread is about Vietnam

Ok, I came back from Asia with extra Dong (Vietnamese currency) I am trying to get rid of...I should have listen to one guy that told me not to exchange too many dollars to dong, damn it!

I cant find a single place in the US that can exchange it back. Does anyone one of any exchange house that will take dong?

As I came to find out . But I figured that as long as I was in Asia, I would be able to get it back in dollars before I left. It isnt much, but I would love to have it back in Dollars if possible...

The annoying thing is that when I was at the Hanoi Airport and I was walking over to exchange it and I decided to go to the bathroom instead. Then, I just forgot about it. That was an expensive trip to the bathroom!

There's far too much talk about dongs in this thread.

(Sorry - it was too irrisistable!)

Both of you LOL!

Has Dave been around TP lately? God, at this point I would mail the money to him and have him use it. I have no use for it here...

He was around TP a lot until he left. Think he left last weekend, hasn't been on since.

Au Revoir

Eeh, if I remember it correctly it's actually illegal to bring dongs out of Vietnam, so I wouldn't be surprised if nobody will exchange it... :)

I arranged a visa for Vietnam through a travel agency in Australia. The girls in that office told me their "in-house" joke about the Vietnamese currency:
