No Cents in Afghanistan

Besides the fact that Afghanistan has its own currency, the afghani, you will find a number of restaurants accepting US Dollars only.

Interestingly, cents were never introduced in the country. Every item which usually costs $2.10 will be automatically $3. Quite a substantial tip even for Americans.
