Not as inexpensive as an ATM but much cheaper than the transaction you described. I usually purchase $100 worth of the currency of the country in which my I'm arriving. Simply for peace of mind. Then I use ATM's from there on out.


And John, your rundown on Spanish Literature was terrific... I'm not sure which file to save it in: Literature or Travel. I think I'll put it in the Lit file. Thank you very much; other than Garcia Lorca and Cervantes, I was unfamiliar with nearly every author and work you mentioned. I appreciate having the door opened to Spanish literature. Thanks again, Debbie
