When I was in Europe back in 2000, the Euro and the US dollar ratio was about 1 to 1. Since buying Trabant parts from Germany, the dollar hasn't been worth as much as the Euro. Somthing like 1 to 1.3. As of today 1 Euro is worth US$1.09 . So now is a great time to order stuff from countries that accept the Euro. https://www.google.com/#safe=active&q=euro to us dollar Still the US dollar is worth little more than half that as a UK pound. Is that way Britian is still hanging onto Sterling and not gone exclussively with the Euro?
