Not until 2010 (I hope)

Posted 10-26-2008 at 01:30 AM by Jtee
I wanna go back to Japan - but I can't.

It's stupid though, because of all this financial who-ha at the moment I would loose a ridiculous amount of money. You see, 3 months ago when I went to Travelex to exchange my Australian Dollars over to Japanese Yen the rate was fucking awesome; 1.00 AUD = 104.00 JPY, which meant I pretty much got back what I gave them - like I said: FUCKING AWESOME!

Now, If I were to walk into Travelex today (well not today because it's Sunday and they're closed, but thats not the point, is it?) with say $8,000 AUD and exchange that for some Yen, they would give me about: 467,596.21 JPY back. Thats nearly 4 THOUSAND DOLLARS DOWN THE SHITTER!

I'm hoping by 2010 (in Spring time) the rate is back up and stronger than ever so everyone can travel overseas again and not cry like little bitches - myself included.

    Yes a miracle! All you need is 1 week for the dollar to rise to its former glory... then it can do whatever it wants for a while ... heh hehee.

    Shit, we would even be happy with anything above or around: 75 @ this point.
