Today I have learned a lot when it comes to Cordobas and U.S. Dollars. 1 U.S. dollar is 24 Cordobas. Before we went shopping today since we as a group we had to exchange our U.S. dollars into Cordobas. The prices of a lot of things looked very different here in Matagalpa, Nicaragua because the had a Cordoba sign next to a Dollar sign. I bought a good Latte Caramelo and it costed me 50 Cordobas. I was really surprised on how many Cordobas I spend compared to the amount of U.S. dollars I spend in the U.S. A grande cup of a Caramel Latte is $2 in Matagalpa, Nicaragua, but in the U.S. it costs $3.80. I also noticed that the whipped cream was home made and that the quality is way better in Matagalpa. I really believe that it’s better to receive something your money is worth. A lot of the stuff in Matagalpa are home made and priced. However, I believe that there is a huge quantity effect in the U.S. I think that in Mainstream coffee shops like Starbucks serves and sells a lot of coffee, lattes, frappacinos, etc. , but the quality is missing. Also, manufactures that make things like clothing, hammocks, and hand made┬ásouvenirs in the U.S. can’t compare to the type of compassion that people in Matagalpa have in creating these products. I feel it is better to support those who work for the money because it creates a satisfaction ripple affect. I believe that because I feel great knowing someone did a good hard job in creating my purchases and they are able to appreciate the Money they earned.Exchanging Currency in a small Atm room
