Due to the country's hyperinflation rate of over 231,000,000% a year, the financial authorities were forced to release larger and larger bills in order to help people buy the simplest things without carrying bricks of bills with them. When the $10,000,000 bill was released early this year, it was worth about $4 US, but it soon became as worthless as the previous bills and now you can find the 100 billion dollars bill which you can use to buy 3 eggs.
When people want to go to a restaurant they are again forced to carry mountains of money with them. This all began in the year 2000, when president Mugabe came to power and transformed the whole country into a giant agricultural field. Now the inflation is through the roof, 80% of the population is unemployed and a third of the population has left the country. At least they can take pride in the fact that they have the highest denomination bills in the world.
500 million note, just printed in May 2008.....everybody can have it....maybe just nice for 1 breakfast/lunch (equal to about USD 2).
If don't want to carry a lot of money..this is the way change it to USD
Nobody want to count the money, just weight it.

A controversial zoo in Argentina allows tourists to have extremely close encounters with some of the most dangerous predators in the world.
Here at the Lujan Zoo near Buenos Aires visitors can ride lions, cuddle bears, stroke tigers and feed cheetahs. Cages are accessible to everyone who paid $50 and signed the paper saying that if you are eaten, the Zoo is not responsible. Lujan Zoo is about 50 miles from Buenos Aires has an entrance fee of just £5.
Visitors can even pick up the smaller animals and manhandle them at risk to themselves and the creatures. Shockingly there doesn't appear to be much in the way of safety regulations to protect either humans or animals and Internet blogs are littered with pictures of tourists with the animals.
Even children are allowed to enter the lion's cage and fondle a range of animals that have the potential to kill or maim them.
Animal protection charity, The Born Free Foundation, has condemned the zoo and issued a statement to urge tourists not to visit it.
Will Travers, CEO of The Born Free Foundation said: 'Based on what I have seen displayed on the Lujan Zoo website, I am fearful that a terrible accident is going to happen.
CEO of The Born Free Foundation add : 'The zoo is, in my view, placing the lives of its visitors at great risk by encouraging them to have 'close encounters' with dangerous, potentially lethal, wild animals.
'Anyone who has any knowledge of big cats will understand that they are wild animals and, as such, as unpredictable. '
Please Comment either such activity should be allowed in different Zoo all over the world??????
