Bring American dollar bills - International travel tip
When traveling, especially in South America and Africa, I have found it helpful to bring American one dollar bills for tips. There's nothing worse than trying to ask someone who you want to tip to make change.
Dollar bills are almost always greatly appreciated, and are typically very tough to find once you're abroad.
