Problem here is, you deal with hundreds and hundreds of thousands... I got two million to shop for! Yeah!
- "Oaw, that's even cheaper than our water!"
Then we thought, nah, how silly, must be wrong, and ended up paying the man 180.000 for the trip.
Well... That was 10 times too much, as the taximeter had indeed stopped at 18.000! *Sigh* Really not easy with all those zeroes!
Anyway, he got a good nights salary out of that, and we didn't get totally ruined (Rp180.000 = 22BND or 120SEK). I'm sure we were not the first tourists doing that mistake either.
You live and you learn.
