I seem to have bad luck when I fly through China. I lost my luggage in China, and I’ve been stranded at the airport. This time I was stranded and needed money and had to use a Chinese ATM. I didn’t need as much money as I took out, since I was only staying one night! But I performed the calculation in my head and really goofed!!
I withdrew 6000-yuan.
That 6000-yuan cost me $977.40USD. The rate that I received was: 6.14 (yuan/USD).
XE shows the prime rate on this day as 6.14.
Yahoo’s best rate for the day was 6.13 (yuan/USD). WOW. I did pretty well.
