Hi, this is perhaps a little bit off-topic but you guys have been so helpful so far!
When I came to the U.S (Nyc) last year I was stopped and had my baggage searched, I had around $800 on me and they advised me that there is only a certain amount that I can bring into the country in cash. (I think he said either $1000 or $2000)
Can anybody confirm this ? As I'll be there again soon!
((I am aware travellers cheques are best, but I've not a clue where I can cash them in Nyc and I really do prefer to keep cash on my person ))
