Indian Rupees

Gandhi is quite famous

But there are bills that are pre-Gandhi and antique looking with many holes.

Almost always, I need to break the bills that are over 500 rupees for the auto rickshaw and taxi drivers. They never carry any change. A cost to the office from the apartment on a taxi is about 150-200 rupees (= 300 to 400 yen) and on a rickshaw ranges from 40 -50 rupees (= 80 to 100 yen) depending on how I bargain. Yes, it is tedious having the need to bargain with the driver every time, especially for the auto rickshaw but this is one of the many basic things getting used to living in India.
