Zimbabwe is beautiful. I drove though it once. I want my return to be swift. It was the bread basket of Africa at one point.


In the early 2000's Zimbabwe had a large inflation so large that is was the second largest inflation ever it was so bad that the currency had to change to the american dollar

A 1 Billion Dollar Zimbabwe Bill. This Zimbabwe Hyperinflated Currency was the result of an economic collapse that was due to many things going wrong which influenced the lack of confidence in the currency. The government was printing money to support their own goals. The use of the Zimbabwean dollar as an official currency was effectively abandoned on 12 April 2009, but it makes for a great collectible.

Can you imagine a 100 trillion denomination currency note? #DidYouKnow In 2009, Zimbabwe printed a 100 trillion Zimbabwean dollar note, which at the time of printing was only worth about US$30.
