money and how to carry it
i want to sort out what money to take with me on my trip to nigeria-benin-niger-algeria-tunisia and hopefully some one can help me.
i will be travelling for 6 weeks using public transport. here is my plan at this stage, please comment:
nigeria (transit only) : US$ cash
benin (about 1 week) : euro cash, (euro travellers cheques ok too?)
niger (about 2 weeks) : euro cash
algeria (about 2 weeks): US$ cash, us$ trav cheq (change in tam possible?)
tunisia (about 1 week) : maestro card
i would prefer information from people who have experience in these countries in 2002 (ie after euro introduction). please tell me when you were there when if you post a reply.
ALSO, is it better to take big notes ie US50, US100 or small notes?
thank you very much
