So much for my plan of learning about all the different denominations up close and personal. Luckily there are websites with pictures!

Just come randomly to your site. I live in Hongkong and I found your itinery is just interesting. It's difficult for westerners to survive in China, especially apart from big cities. Good luck. BTW take real care of your belongings and ignore all the hassles, remember to bargain - starting from 10% of the given price.
