You're right.  I flipped my calculations.  I KNEW there was something
wrong.  I meant the other way around!  :-)

But yeah,  rule of thumb is if you want 500 cash, expect to withdraw the
lower amount of USD.   As for other countries... you guys figure it
out.  :-)

As for Steve,  You're right.  If you use a credit card to get a cash
advance it is a substantial fee.  But if you use your debit card (which
is a credit-card wannabe) then its strictly a bank-to-bank transaction
and no exchange rate fees apply.  Only the bank fee for going to another
bank.  Which is about $3.50 here in USD.
