Indonesia continues to use and circulate small value coins, but they are not very common at jobsite.  Instead of handing back change in the form of coins, the Hidden Valley Hero often uses candy to complete a transaction.  This picture shows a handful of Kino candies in one of the the change slots.

    Thanks for these very interesting postings. The old neighborhood has lost two more families- Dave and Eileen who were across the street from me have sold and are gone as are the Canadian couple that lived next door to them. The whole neighborhood has gone brown now except for Diane.

    Have a wonderful holiday season.

    Don
