Is there a need to obtain Euros before getting to Bordeaux? I hate to think of traveling with US dollars to get me out of the States, a few pounds to get through 6 hours at Gatwick and then Euros that I'll finally need from Bordeaux on. Since I don't have a place to obtain Euros locally, I hoped they'd be readily available in Bordeaux or that I could get by on a few dollars until I found a money exchange. Any suggestions??? Thanks.
