I noticed that there were some Spanish visitors in town this week. I got some Spanish notes and coins from shops as a change. :)

Bossanova, in Portugal the Escudo coins can no longer be exchanged at the central bank right? I think I heard the central bank cut-off at December 2002. :(

No, definitely not :( . I get less foreign coins and bills than ever before. Obviously after one year most of the public noticed that there are different coins and bills, and collecting them is now a popular sport. :?
