Cost of a Beer in Zimbabwe

    Newer Older

    The attached picture was taken at Country Club bar on Saturday 24th November 2007.
    The patron had been to his bank and was supplied with the only notes they had - $500 's !!
    A beer at Country Club is now Z$1 Million so there are 4 piles of 250,000 in 500's.
    Just to remind those of you who are no longer here, we lost 3 zero's in August 2006. So the beer actually costs Z$1 Billion of the money you knew.

      Madness, the cash machines must be empty after the first person uses it!

      edit: how much would the computer in the background cost? ;-)

      Man, but I do miss me some Castle. Are mozzies or windhoeks any cheaper?

      For a second, I thought that was a bar in New York.
