Day 23

Day 23: banking issues and la inauguracion de arteba 2010

I had to pay a $200 deposit for my room in San Telmo– but the owners had not told me this before, so we agreed that I pay it in $100 instalations each month. I wanted to pay in USD so that when I left, I wouldn’t have pesos that I wouldn’t need once I returned back to the US. Long story short, I tried to take out USD from the bank with my debit card but it wouldn’t work. So I had to pay in pesos :( while paying a USD $15 fee (I believe) for taking out 900 ARS pesos.

It’s really a pain trying to take out cash from your bank account because you have to pay a ridiculously high transaction fee.

After trying to figure out banking, I went to ArteBA2010 to help Munguau prepare for the opening night.
