Senegalese currency

edited July 2009 in Africa
Does anyone know how I can obtain CFA, Senegalese currency, in New York so that we will have cab fare when we arrive in Dakar? Neither my home bank, American Express, nor AAA carries it....

    blauner - you can change dollars into CFA on arrival at the airport. And in just case bring some $10 and $20 notes to cover the cab ride as there is not a taxi drier on earth that doesn't accept dollars.
