In about a week and a half, we're off again for one of my traipses across the
known world.  Without giving away all the details, I guess it's OK to admit
that it's hard to keep track of how much stuff costs (or should cost) in the
plethora of currencies that we'll be using along the way.  I've found it
convenient to create spreadsheets (the original is colored to make it easier
to read) with how many dollars a 100 of anything is, and how much of anything
$100 is.  Since we will be visiting at least two locations with gold market
I am pricing gold in terms of various karate values and in various weight systems
(troy, metric, Chinese, Thai, etc.) in terms of the most likely currencies
(Sorry about the "????", but that's how the conversion to TMF's shows the Arabic for UAE Dirhams)

I also included a smaller matrix for silver (just in case).
By changing the gold and silver price, the chart recalculates.
I find that coming prepared can save a lot of money and prevent (or at least reduce) idiot mistakes
