The Ethiopian currency is birr (pronounced "beur"). The 1 and 10 birr denominations are particularly useful for paying for daily expenses. For a Westerner, visiting Ethiopia remains relatively cheap. However, prices have increased and the time when 10 birrs represented a full meal is over. If you have a credit card, you don't need to take large amounts of money with you. If the card is not accepted by the merchant, go to an ATM.
