I will be traveling to Austria in about a week. I leave on a Tuesday, September 9, 2008. I’m looking forward to the trip and to returning to Europe though I can’t say I am thrilled with the currency rate.
It is currently €1 Euro = $1.46 US, yikes!
I am attending a friend’s wedding. Actually, I am participating in the wedding as one of the bride’s maids. Our friendship is unlike many that exist. We have known each other since high school. We started as pen-pals, before there was email, and have been writing each other ever since. We met once while I was in college. She came to New York City for a visit during an English course she was taking at a school in Upstate New York. Her name is Ramona. She is getting married to a very nice guy named Robert.
