I spent all of my leftover euros at the airport in Berlin buying random candy for gifts here. Little did I know, you actually need foreign money to purchase a Visa at the airport in Cairo. They will not accept local currency. Well, that is all I had after I withdrew cash from the ATM two feet away. Welcome to a country where you can’t use their own currency! But also the rules can apparently bent if you ask very politely and there literally is no other option. So now here I am in Cairo!
