Weekend #39, Sunday October 3rd, 2010

The Euro made again some progress compared to the US$ the past days.Also the Euro is slowly gaining on the Yen too. I hope this trend will stay on for a while, because I will be in Japan in December.
I bought a watch (not a G-Shock, not even a Casio!)
Price: £14,99 GBP
Rate: 1 EUR = 0.843082 GBP
Price I paid: €17,78

There is only one problem: The Paypal website crashed during the payment. A red text told me to try again later, so I did. When I finished the payment for the second time, it appeared I paid twice £14,99 for the watch. The seller claims only to have received one payment. Paypal told me to ask the money back from the seller, I think I am sent around in circles. Might be continued.

I bought a $90.- watch (including shipping):
1 EUR = 1.34208 USD
I paid €67,06
