That Coin Is SMALL. What Is It?

During our beach trip to El Salvador, we girls had a scary glimpse of how confused we are all going to appear when it comes time for us to function back in the United States.

On our way to the beach our first morning, we stopped at a tienda to hydrate with some bottled agua pura (good old H2O). After handing over our paper bills and receiving our change in coins, one of us exclaimed:

"Wow, this coin is small! And light! What is it?"

"Oh. It's a quarter." El Salvador uses the U.S. dollar.

We couldn't get over how small and light the coin felt. We are going to be such awkward returned citizens in a few months' time.
