A Pence Saved

A pence saved is two pennies earned.  One thing that is painfully obvious is that London is expensive.  The current exchange rate is above $2 for every £1. It is unbearable to retrieve £50 from an ATM only to have $100+ debited from my account!  I’ve tried to be ultra-thrifty, but with the high cost of travel, entertainment, and food, I find my cash reserves repidly depleted.  I’ve been fortunate that I haven’t had to pay for accommodations and that Walid, a college friend, picked up the tab when we hung out (thanks, buddy!).  Still, I’m looking forward to converting to Euros when I leave England.
