Gringo money

Although your may find a rare merchant these days to act as a money changer you will get a very poor exchange rate and perhaps none on $2 bills.

Maybe a bank will take the $2 bill but make sure to take your passport.

Weren't US $2 bills considered bad luck years ago....and you seldom saw them?

Reminds us of our honeymoon trip to Florida in the late '60s. We were in rural northeastern Alabama and my little Toyota Corolla was low on gas. This was the days when $2 got you half a tank. We pulled into a tiny old station right out of Deliverance and I asked for $2. worth. The only cash I had was a Canadian $2 bill. (This was the good 'ole days, when the Canadian dollar was worth 5 cents MORE than a US dollar). Anyway, the elderly attendant looked at my Canadian $2 bill, pointed to the picture on it, and said "Who's that?"
I said: "Why that's the Queen of England".
He replied: "Ah'll take your word for it"
