Many travelers prefer to buy foreign currency in their own countries before they leave,
both for convenience and as a hedge against possible market fluctuations.

globetrotters. By buying your currency beforehand, you can become acquainted with the
value and appearance of the notes and coins, as well as avoid any exchange commissions
applied by foreign banks for the conversion of foreign currency. It is more convenient to
have some local currency with you immediately upon arrival in a foreign country for the

coincide with normal banking hours. As soon as you arrive, you can be ready to go
without wasting time lining up to exchange your money.

vividly narrates the richness and complexity of black people living in rural Georgia during
1920’s and 1930’s. Although the novel was attacked by certain critics when it was first
published, it was highly praised by others and won both the American Book Award and the
Pulitzer Prize for fiction. It became a best-seller and was made into a successful film by
director Steven Spielberg. The novel gets much of its special flavor from its use of

This style of writing was a narrative structure commonly used by the eighteenth- century
novelists, such as Jane Austen and Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
