Currency Exchange in Somaliland


In most countries you need a passport to exchange foreign money for local currency. In Somaliland, an unrecognised country in the Horn of Africa, you need a wheelbarrow. According to a visitor’s account:

Most local banknotes in Somaliland are only worth pennies, so a brick of money is usually needed to buy a meal of camel hump or goat meat. The whole process of exchanging notes is gloriously exotic.

    This is where barter is king. This currency is worthless. Better to trade your fillings.
