Your Travel Statistics section is a welcome addition to the paper. However, I am wondering why the South African rand is never included in the foreign exchange rates.

Due to space limitations, the Travel Section is able to include only a sampling of foreign exchange rates. Countries included in the listing are periodically changed to offer currencies that we believe to be of the greatest interest to travelers.
