So what does this orange have to do with a downward spiral? Lots – because it is all that I will be able to afford to eat in Venice after the downward spiral of the current exchange rate between the australian dollar and the euro (thismoning .47). At least I won’t die of a vitamin C deficiency. Can you believe my luck? After months of planing (and dreaming) I will be thinking hard about every euro I spend on holidays. I wonder how much further it can possibly go, and can it bounce back between now and October 25?
