... Australian dollar is exchanged at 2.7 Lei. Accommodation in a 4 star costs $15 Australian dollars per night, a meal is around $10 Australian, and beer is about $3, and apparently a pair of jeans costs about $10.

As big as an Indigo, but much, much classier. But no books on history or politics. They seem to be more interested in art history, music, architecture and design.
