Well, most of you probably don't really take notice in how the dollar/euro exchange rate is doing.... but we sure do! In the last month or maybe a little longer it has dropped about .35 cents!! That's A LOT! When Danny & I took our survey trip in 2002 it was practically equal exchange and when we moved here in 2004 it was about $1.21 to 1.00 euro. It was $1.60 to get 1.00 euro-- currently takes $1.26 to get 1.00 euro! Fantastic!
