A reverse Marshall Plan?

In one of the many free newspapers that I was handed at the bus stop yesterday, I saw an article which announced a promotion for American tourists: at selected locations, restaurants and hotels, as well as museums and theaters will be offering 10-20% discount for Americans. Apparently the dollar is so weak that they'd rather have Americans come here and pay less than not come at all. You can try to decipher the article here, or just have Babelfish give you a translation. I'm not sure how they'll check that you're actually American - maybe you have to show your passport when you get the bill in the restaurant or something.

I guess now it's affordable :-)

Well, if you convert the currency 1 Euro = 1 Dollar, you'll stay sane. :-)
