Wow! I won't do that again!

I had 120 Polish zlotys when I left Warsaw. It was burning a hole in my wallet, and I couldn't wait to get rid of it. I was able to trade it in when I was in Wernigerode. The bank gave me 18 eros for my zlotys. When I checked today, I saw that according to the exchange, it was worth 27 euros. What a ripoff!

I know banks have to make a profit, and zlotys are not a currency that everyone wants, but I wasn't happy about getting so little for my zlotys.

If I'd been thinking, I'd have dropped it off at a church before I left Warsaw or at least have given it to one of the helpful receptionists at my hotel or even to a passing stranger.

Last time I was in Warsaw, I saw a couple of nuns at the airport, and I gave them my zlotys. I figured they wouldn't spend it on drugs.
