Money isn't everything

Just pulled out the cash for the trip.  $800 dollars for the permit, and about another $800 for all the extra's that might happen.  Did you know that there are now conversion charges on your credit card when you buy something with your Visa.  I am not talking about the conversion cost, I am talking about an additional 3% charge on your card.  Amex charges 2.75% on top, just wanted to let you know.  This is the reason I am taking all the cash.  Thankfully for me I am a bit bigger than the typical South American so I am not too worried about being mugged.
