Ten Years of the Euro!

And Europe's still trying to figure the whole thing out.

The first (and last) time I went to France was in March 2000, when the currency was still the franc but it was being steadily deflated in order to make the switch to the euro. The dollar, on the other hand, was sky-high, so the exchange rate was something like 6 francs to the dollar. The most expensive meal I ate was four courses, with wine, and cost the equivalent of 16 USD. It was glorious.

Imagine what that meal would cost now.
