Oh, no, another one!! 16C in Copenhagen - how do I translate this into Farengheit? Divulge by 32, then what?

And how will I translate the purchases - 79 kronas, 5.66 kronas per 1 US dollar - how much is this?

I am in a state of panic

Approximate reading would be 16 times 2 plus 30= 62 I don't know if this helps, but here goes. 1. Norway-- .1674 = 1 US dollar 2. Denmark-- .1770 = 1 US dollar As of todays currency exchange. We are also getting ready for our departure on Tuesday. To answer your specfic question, one has to know the country as three of the countries use different Krona. Richard

LOL with so many threads one gets easily confused!

I will ask the banks how to translate Celcius in Farenheit. As for Kronas... if I flush a bunch of dollars held as a fan they will look at me with great respect!

(seriously, we both grew up in USSR with metric system and C temps, so it's not a problem) - especially after a couple of Coronas

Sure, they have kings/queens, they have Coronas

Rainy, from Belarus, came in 1989 the old way - through Austria and Italy. Now in San Francisco, dreaming of going back to see the places where we stayed. Hopefully, next year!

Dayenu; My grandmother was from Vilnus. Perhaps we're cousins. Any Tulpinski's today. That's not a drink. If it was it would be very strong.

Hey Bugler, Dayenu...I do know a used car dealer in Copenhagen. But actually you don't want to buy a new car because of high tax. Anyway don't gorge yourself on the herring.

Seems like the only herring what would raise a Russian's blood pressure is a RED Herring.

Now that we are home, why their coins have holes in them? Is it to follow the European tradition of Swiss cheese?

The coins have holes in them so you can see what coins you have, even if they are in a pile. It is really quite ingenious.
