Currency Collection

Our friend Said with his currency collection.
A few months ago, one of the security guards where we park our car showed our kids his currency collection. He has always been nice to our kids and has a friendly smile for us so my wife gave him some Japanese money for his collection.

A few weeks ago, I got a call from a reporter at the National asking if we know him, if we gave him money, and questions along those lines. As it turned out, they did an article about him and we were the only people still in Abu Dhabi that the newspaper was able to contact. It was nice to read the article and learn about the extent of his hobby. (For the article, click, here.) Unfortunately, he no longer works at the same place, but he was nice enough to save a copy of the newspaper for us. I was able to pass along a few more bits of currency from my travels. I know that this isn't big news, but it's nice to see how much his hobby means to him and that we were able to help him with it a little.
