Got Euros?

It had been my plan to get some Euros while at the airport before my trip in two weeks. However, this morning, a coworker just back from Europe offered me hers (at the current exchange rate) and so as of this morning, I am the proud owner of a stack of Euros.

It looks like fake money to me.

The most interesting thing about the Euro, if you’ve never seen one, is that their denominations vary in size based on their value. Thus, the E20 is slightly larger than the E10, which is slightly larger than the E5, and so on.

At least I can check another item off of my checklist.
