Why not just use your ATM card and withdraw small
amounts often -- worked very well for me in Germany
and Ireland a few years back -- or exchange your US
cash at a bank in one of the larger cities. To avoid
all of that, just use your credit card if that's an
option and then you won't have to deal with being
pick-pocketed or getting rid of any left over foreign
currency at the end of your trip.
The cash requirements are so that they know you aren't
vagrant and can afford to stay the duration of your
trip -- but I too have never had it enforced, just
asked of me when they stamp your passport.
Have a fun trip!
