Kathie, need some help

Jump to last reply

We like to be prepared well in advance for a trip and have some questions which hopefully you can help us with some answers.

We know that the internet can be sporadic at best, but for sending and receiving e-mails is there one source that seems to work better than the others? We have a few different e-mails addresses.

Can you take a backpack or even a fanny pack into a Shrine or do they have to be checked somewhere?

Now everybody's favourite question--Money. As Canadians, we do not have access to U.S. notes as you would have. We have to go to the bank or a currency exchange and wait while they search through their U.S. notes to find pristine bills. We have read on many sites,(I know shame on us for not just using Fodors LOL), that for example the $100 bills must be 2006 or newer, and that all others have to be the coloured bills. As far as you know is this still the way it has to be or has somethings changed? We are starting to collect pristine money now and don't want to waste our time if the bills we get won't be accepted.

Last question. Just out of curiosity what did the Burma flag look like before the country became Myanmar?

Thanks for any assistance you can give us.
