“Die sind nicht so gerne akzeptiert!”

Or, the 200 Swiss Franc photo series.

Because when you have a large, almost unspendable bill, the obvious thing to do with it is take lots of pictures. Until finally, when purchasing wine, a friendly salesman happily takes it, sympathizing with our woes in breaking it earlier (luckily, you can spend Euros just as easily in Liechtenstein). “Ja, die sind nicht so gerne akzeptiert,” he said, in his thick Liechtenstein-accent. “Yeah, they’re not so gladly accepted.” Farewell dear bill.

PS. Switzerland, you easily have one of the silliest, most colorful, gaudiest currencies out there. Somehow, I’m not surprised.
