Thanks so much for all the information I have received on these boards.
I am still however not clear on a few things. If someone can please clarify them for me that would be great.
1. I read stories online about food shortages and then I read about an amazing foodie scene. Which is it ? Will I be entering a city with a thriving foodie scene or will I be expected to wait in line for hours to purchase table salt ? If lets say I wanted to get off the street and purchase a bottle of water and a few snacks to take back to my hotel will there be stores to access this type of merchandise ?
2. Considering I find someone to " Exchange Lechuga Verde " for me will I be expected to carry loads of cash on me since the largest denomination of the Bolivar is a 100 note ? I think a Mc Donalds lunch is something like 20,000.
Does it get crazy and how do you manage to conceal so much cash on your person in a warm climate. Dipping into a stash pouch all the time can alert unwanted attention.
3. Am I to assume that ANYONE I ask will want my dollars in exchange for the parallel rate ? *** Do BILLS HAVE TO BE IN PRISTINE CONDITION and are some higher denominations like 50's and 100 accepted ?
Thanks so much for the responses.
