cash monies

our bank offers quite a few nice services. one of those is the ability to have foreign currency shipped in two business days. since berlin and prague are cash money towns and leff and i loathe foreign transaction fees (there's one with every atm/cashpoint transaction unless you track down the local "global atm alliance" participant.), we thought we'd take the bank up on its offer.

these first bills are probably old hat to a lot of you readers. i mean, yeah, we've used euros before too but i had never seen them. (we used the debit card so no physical bills on that trip.) i am LOVING the size difference.

and, holy hell, czech koruna are beautiful.

that's not as much as it looks like, btw. the exchange rate is REALLY working in our favor.

that's all i've got. i'm going to sit here and stare at the koruna for a while.
