Why have it at all?

The Argentine 100 Peso note is about the equivalent of $25, and it is the only note that cash machines and change bureaus in Buenos Aires’ Ezeiza airport distribute. Even picking up a modest amount of money leaves you with a huge wad of the things. Just don’t try buying anything in the airport with it. One look and merchants recoil as if you’ve just offered to pay with a dead rat during a bubonic plague epidemic.
