My lovely "Mother's Help" is off for 3 weeks to Brazil, and I want to give her some spending money.
Is it best to try to get hold of Reals for her, or would US dollars be more useful (much easier to get)?
I went there in the late 1980's, when the currency was in complete flux, and we took US dollars which were changed almost daily on the black market (organised by our reputable tour operator), to give us the best value for our money.
Dollars are pretty easy to change over here - not so much currency flux now so if she can bring some Reais to use at first, great! Where is she going? I'm in Sao Paulo, if she needs any info or help...
