December 1st, 2010

The rate of the Euro dropped a lot in one week. The Euro is not popular, because of financial problems of Ireland. Although the other Euro countries helped Ireland out, trust in the Euro was lost. The rate even dropped under $130.- for € 100.-  for a short time. The Euro is slowly crawling upward now. Let's hope the course will rise up fast, because in a little more than 2 weeks I will be traveling to Japan with a friend and I would like to have a good Euro/Yen rate. By the way, also Japan has financial problems, so the Yen dropped with the Euro simultaneously for a while.

I bought a G-Shock watch today.

Total price was $85.-.
Rate: 1 EUR = 1.26865 USD
Paid: €67,00
