Stupid US dollar

Friday 1st May – 5 months, 15 days

I don’t feel the effects of the global financial crisis much in my every day life here, apart from one thing.

Currency speculation.

It’s a guessing game. Will the Aussie dollar rise another couple of cents? Will it fall by five? This makes a big difference in the amount of money I can withdraw from the bank, people!

If only East Timor were on the frickin’ rupiah. Yep I know it’s not a popular opinion, in fact it’s a *taboo* opinion, but I’m putting it out there. The US dollar was a crap idea for Timor.
