Indonesian Rupiah

The Indonesian currency unit is the rupiah. Our rate of exchange to the US dollar has varied from 9,600 to 10,130 rupiah per 1 USD. You get a higher rate of exchange if you cash in $100 dollar bills than you would $20 dollar bills.
A meal at a local food stall cost me 5,000 rupiah, or .51 cents. This was Mikes meal last night at a nice little restaurant--delicious fish, rice, veggies and garlic bread for 40,700 rupiah, or $4.15 USD!!!
Needless to say, our spending power here is very good......
