    Bank notes and changing money

    My new company recommends changing $1000 or $2000 at the airport. Given that the largest note is 100,000 that is going to be 140 + notes so I'm thinking just change $1000 or I won't be able to sit up straight? How thick is 140 notes?

    I need some new ones and remember that they were significantly cheaper in Indo than Thailand. So it may be better to wait until I get there? It's not really the money it is the "Made In Germany" Thai-style rip off. Here would be about $700. For progressive, self tinting. No I am not buying then...
