I have four days in Moscow later this month. Red October originally quoted in USD; I asked for quote in Euros given that I don't have access to US currency. I am sure glad I did. By the time I pay the 1628 Euros, it will be worth fewer USD than at time of booking.

My ATM card only allows me $500 per day. For a year, I have been going to bank around three times a week getting Euros. I should have all the money for Moscow by this Friday and will then start getting money for rest of month.
