"Changing small money into bills ..." Egypt Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Myndo
Egypt Warnings and Dangers: 366 reviews and 200 photos
On the street one gets often asked if one could change the small money into bills - especially Euros.
Problem is, that the banks in Egypt (as most other banks, too) do not take coins. Many tourists leave 1 Euro coins as baksheesh. So what can one do? Ask the tourists if they can change 10 coins into a bill.
If you can, do it so, you help these people.
BUT: have a good look at the coins when you recieve them, because what looked like an Euro coin (silver outside, gold inside) could be one of the old Italian Lira - and they are worth nothing anymore.
