Daer Mike,

Sorry for the delay in replying to your inquiry -- I was quite knocked out
with a cold earlier this week. According to our accountant, the ?4,289.02
that she transferred to your account included the airfare, train and taxi
(?1771), and the 6 days consulting fee ($3900) and 3 days per diem ($360).
The exchange rates that she applied to this period were 1$ = NOK 7.32, and
1? = NOK12.384. The UNEP per diem rate for Cuba is $120.00 /day. If your
actual expenses were more, you can send in the receipt and we will
reimburse you for the true costs. Have a nice weekend!

Regards,
Karen

Karen,

The payment for my Cuba visit has been made successfully to my account, a
total of
4287.02 pounds. My travel costs were 1771 pounds, thus leaving 2516.02
pounds as my consulting rate (6 days@$650/day allows for $1.55 to the
pound). The contract with you also stated however that a per diem was also
to be paid at the standard UNEP rate. I spent three days in the country,
but the per diem for thesee 3 days seems not to have been included in the
payment.

Can you check this out for me and see whether something has been omitted?

Many thanks,

Mike
