Audrey Ference lives in New York.
I took out one hundred dollars in cash on Black Wednesday and didn't spend it. Then I decided to go full-on hermit (and straight-edge!) for finals, making it easy to keep track of where the cash went (which, let’s face it, I was stressed so my spending was focused on eating).
21元 ($3.42) Taxi, to meet a friend for lunch; I was running late.
Where'd you last hundo go, LaToya Jovena?
Where'd your last hundo go, Brendan O'Connor?
Hungary is a place where fois gras is cheap, but flip-flops are expensive.
$40: Two single-day passes to the Angkor temples. We may have overslept and missed our early start, instead plunging straight into the sweltering mid-morning heat, but it was still worth every dollar. Bring hats; leave your fear of heights at home. Scaling the rickety wooden steps to the top of each temple requires all your wits.
Where'd you spend your last hundo, Allegra Ringo?
Where'd your last hundo go, Kelly Maxwell?
