Abu Dhabi: and my Money on my Mind

I find the money here really easy to negotiate. A dirham is about a third of a dollar. That's easy enough! And the bills have Arabic numbers on them, so I don't have to memorize their colors. Easy peasy! The coins are a bit harder, though I got my first 50-cent piece today, and it has a 50 on it. 

For some reason I find this money far, far easier to deal with than pesos.

This is about $28 american. I got $500 dirham out when i got here, and have about 200 left, so about $300 AED expenses per week ($100 American), mostly just taxi, lunch, taxi, dinner, and minor expenses.
