The money here is a challenge. Tried to purchase a bag of roasted almonds from one of the street vendors, but couldn’t work out what I was paying when he said it was 60 Kr. As it turns out, there are about fifteen of our cents for every kroner (kronen?), so those almonds would have been in the neighborhood of nine dollars. But getting a dinner bill over 900 Kr can take some of the joy out of a meal, I’ll tell you. It means a body carries a wad of pretty big bills around, too. And alcohol is EXTREMELY expensive. I won’t even disclose what we paid for a bottle of wine at dinner last night. Again, tends to take some of the delight out of a nice bottle of wine.

You are right, it is horrifically expensive! Try a weeks shopping at the supermarket!
