Money & crime

Two items for the Rwanda update (I was just there June 4-11): 1) I echo what a recent traveler mentioned–take newer bills if you want to change US dollars. If you are trying to (a) pay with or (b) change any older bill (the green-only bills), there will be a surcharge (if they let you use it at all). Take newer bills (the ones with peach and purple colors added to the green). 2) With rising food prices, crime is also going up–be extra careful in the city center, especially on weekends.
