Strasbourg update

Everything over here is wicked expensive because the Europeans tack on a 19.6% VAT (value added tax) onto anything organic or inorganic. Plus the service is automatically added onto any restaurant bill so a Coke is about $3.

The only thing that's cheap is the gasoline. I passed a gas station that listed the price at 1.10 Euros, or about $1.25/gallon. Wow!

Joking...it's $1.25 per liter. Yikes. Peace out.
