Please help me lol. It's been a long time since I traveled abroad and it might be that the caffeine hasn't yet kicked in this morning but....
I'm going on a trip that the currency exchange rate is $1 / 3.35. If I want to tip someone the equivalent of $50, then I would give them ~ 150 of their country's currency, right? Or, would it just be 50 of their currency?
Or, stated another way - Does the exchange rate have anything to do with the actual value of the money to the person being tipped (i.e. it's just cheaper there than it is in the U.S.)?
