I just got back from Burkina Faso and I have about 45,000 FCFAs ~ $90USD in my pocket and I'm not sure where/how to exchange them. I thought for sure I could have exchanged them at ADD
but they wouldn't take them, neither would anyone at CDG
--which surprised me since both airports have a lot of West African traffic. I thought about just going to the checkin line for all the West African flights and asking around but I thought there might be a law against that
. I stopped by my bank here (Chase) and she wasn't sure she could take them, but the currency was in her big manual of currencies. Anyone know where I can exchange FCFAs?
