We accept Visa, American Express and Oranges, 10 July 2009

So Ed, Annie and I were people watching in the plaza in Cordoba centre and I looked over to the window of a shop near by. In the door was a sign listing the payment methods accepted by the shop: Visa, America Express, Mastercard, Electron, Naranja. Now, for those of you not in the spanish know, Naranja translates as Orange. Brilliant, it´s 2009 but there are still places where you can pay with Oranges. It´s like an exotic variety of Medieval Feudalism.

Note, I have since found out that there is an Argentinian credit card called Naranja. Such a disappointment.
