    We are moving to Nîmes next summer/fall and are in the process of opening a bank account with HSBC France. It can be done online, but has many detailed and sometimes bizarre requirements (send us pictures of you and your wife with your left hand under your chin). It is going well so far and...

    What is the easiest and cheapest way to pay a USA credit card every month in dollars with a Mexican bank account in pesos?
