Uzbekistan Money

Relationship: Child of im/migrant

My object is money from our country, Uzbekistan. It has a picture of our first king of Uzbekistan because he is an important political figure in that country. It’s used for food, clothes and water. The king’s name is Emir. On the 500 and 1,000 bill there is a tiger with a face on its body. On the 200 and 5000 bill is the castle of Emir, which is a museum now in Uzbekistan. It’s for free you can just go in and see the castle of Emir and next to the castle of Emir is his wife's castle and her tomb. Money is important to all cultures but this money is very important to me. I get to go back to Uzbekistan here and there. It allows me to feel as if I am back “home”.
