When I first found out how much we would be paying in rent here, I went online to see how that translated into dollars. At that time, the Swiss Franc cost between $1.12 and $1.14. Then the dollar gained a little, and it was around $1.10 for a franc, and I could do the mental math of adding 10% to the Swiss price. I’ve been tracking the dollar’s rise and yesterday this picture popped up. So, since I started budgeting for the year, our rent has effectively decreased enough so we might decide to eat out once in a while. Now there’s a concept!
However, the price of a loaf of Ruchbrot has only decreased 10 cents from $1.25 to $1.15 a loaf. Always a good deal. We go through at least two loaves a week.
