The Colon

I'm still getting used to the currency here, the Colon (named after Christopher Columbus).  Colones are distributed in various amounts and Costa Ricans have to work with big numbers because of the value of the currency (it takes 498 Colones to equal $1).  

I'm rich!  Just check out my 10,000 bills (worth about $20)!!
