|Subject: Re: Euro vs Dollar|
When we were in Egypt several years ago, found ATMs in larger cities and places that catered to tourists. As in most countries, the off beat places want cash - their cash or Dollars! For non European countries, I've taken a fair amount of Dollars ($500 ?) , about the same in traveler's checks and some basic amount ($100) in their money. I use my ATM and a credit card. However, I do use a money belt, courtesy of Rick Steves. It just becomes part of my clothing. Carry credit card, ATM and pass port in it as I rarely end up at a hotel with a safe. If I don't need the cash or the travelers checks, there they are for home expenses or the next trip.
