He says 12.9 but we're negotiating.  ;)
Not bad, but 13 is better. Who's this guy, and how'd you find him?

Should be able to do a little better, maybe 13 or 13.1

Are they making you roasted beef?
I figure we'll settle for 13. I'm happy to lose .1 to change money in a robe and slippers than in a cueva.

I haven't had a chance to email them yet but I figure I'll ask them personally at dinner tonight.

They need at least a couple days heads up to make it.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

A Jew from BA.
A friend who lives here connected me with him. I'll ask if I can distribute his info

I don't need it, thanks. I also asked a friend for someone who'd trade money for me but they didn't want their information public (even though I met him in his store in Once). I was just curious how you found him. It's also nice that he's coming to you.

Try just going to shul and asking who can help you. You should get a rate similar to dolarblue.net.  Of course there's Called Florida, but that's where most people go so you might not get as good a rate.

I switched it in the Chabad building, many people there to switch with. Gotta be careful is you switch by Calle Florida, lots of scammers around area too.
