That's where we differ. You don't bring a few bucks with you. It's more
like 1K or 1.5K euros. I had to bring that back to France twice, and I
tell you, it doesn't make me happy. It's just too much money to carry
around. Even if we leave out the possibility of getting robbed, what
happens if the guy who is in charge of the money lost it? does he have
to pay back pg.eu? I sure don't want that.
