If you graphed my general mood over time the last few weeks, no doubt the line would mirror a similar graph of the currency exchange rate, Australian dollar to Euro. Sad but true, the amount of fun we can have on Blitzkrieg Tour 2010 largely depends on how much beer our measly Australian pesos can buy.
Last week were on a high – the Euro had tanked against the Aussie dollar, no doubt due in part to the problems with Greece’s economy and the suspicions that Spain and Portugal were likely to follow them into bankruptcy. 1 Australian dollar was buying 71 Euro cents, at its highest.
Then our idiot government decided to tax the hell out of mining companies and the Aussie dollar took a massive slide to it’s lowest point in 10 months. 1 Aussie peso is now worth a measly 65 cents. Thanks guys. It might not sound like much but over the course of hundreds of dollars it really starts to add up.
Here’s hoping things stabilise a little in the next few weeks so we don’t end up bored and sober! There’s 70 days to go…
