Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Didn't see a single one of those damn Mickey D's when I was in Cape Verde either! Was quite a welcome relief.

And of 16 (or is it 17?) countries I've been too, that was the hardest place I've been to use a US dollar. Most places they'll take it and give you change in the local currency even if it's not a great exchange rate. But it was almost impossible there w/o going to the bank to change to Escudo's. Fortunately others on the boat had plenty of Euros. That works.
