I was on the night hike that Chris organised on Friday night. It was wet. Which meant everything got wet, including my wallet with money in it. I had one HK$500 note and couple of english notes. It seems the ink from the HK note has run - so the note itself is somewhat blotchy and I now have a 10 note with some purple dye in it.
The taxi driver I tried to pay with this 'blotchy' note wasn't too impressed with it last night - understandably so I reckon. I'd taken the precaution of drawing some more money before going out.
Does the ink in banknotes over here run? (It's a bank of China note) I'd have thought it unlikely. In which case, have I got a forged note?
