Does Monopoly money work in Peru?

Today I picked up my Peruvian Neuvo Sol (Peru’s currency.) I paid US$80 for S/ 230 which I don’t think is too bad of an exchange rate.img_4963

It’s always funny to me to look at other country’s currency because to me, it means nothing more than Monopoly money. Buying things is almost a funny joke.

I honestly wish I could use Monopoly money because my trip would be much less expensive and I could bring back a gift for everyone (with my new, extra-extra large suitcase that I would buy down there).

But unfortunately I have to use the real Peruvian currency.
