As a traveler/tourist, it is of great importance to know the conversion rate of your own currency to the country you are visiting. 

It helps you in planning out your trip, but it also, more importantly, ensures that you are not swindled with a large bill at the end of your holiday...

This woman posted a video sharing that her friends and her managed to spend $5,000 (R77,926.00) at a dinner in Mexico. 

The tricky and 'holding your head in your hands' dilemma is that they didn't realise it till it was too late.

She finally gives some detail to the story. And this is one of those horror stories when you have to work out the bill between friends. 

It seems that it all came down to popping bottles...

They bought nine bottles of champagne, they thought that the waiter gave them the value of each bottle in pesos, meanwhile, it was in dollars. 

So, in actuality, what they assumed was 250 pesos, was in fact $250!
