This is not the article you want to wake up to as you’re planning your three month trip through Europe (unless, I suppose, you’re European): Dollar Touches Another Low Against Euro – New York Times, Sept 21, 2007.
Not only did it fall to an all-time low against the Euro of $1.41 to one euro, but it fell to even against the Canadian dollar! Even! It used to be a buck forty Canadian to one U.S. dollar. I’d head up to Vancouver and live like a king! Now, what? I’m a pauper! Wiped out!
OK, not so bad, but still, crappy timing.
