A few years ago Euro came into our lives changing the currencies most of us had for decades. Was it for good or for bad?Did Euro bring this economical strenght our leaders had promised us?Do you feel more "powerful" and more "rich" now with Euro or is it the other way around? Did Euro really affect our lives or not? From what I see in my country Euro has been a disaster.Many people want the Drachma back and I personally can't really get used to Euro.We've all got used to Drachmas and we treat the Euro banknotes in a similar way.For example,about 10 years ago a child could get about 500 drachmas or 1000 drachmas to spend per day or about 2,000 drachmas to go out for a coffee.Now it's at least 20 Euro for that. When the grandparents,uncles,aunties,godfather and other relatives came to visit at a celebration they usually gave me about 5,000 drachmas or 10,000 drachmas banknotes.The highest ones.Now they give me 50 Euro banknotes which are about 17,000 drachmas. Apart from all that there prices have gone up but the salaries have remained more or less the same.We get tricked when we buy something.When something used to cost a 100 drachmas coin,now it's 1 Euro.That's about 3 times the price.Even junkies that used to "ask" for people at the street to give them 100 drachmas so they could "get a ticket" now ask for 1 Euro. And let's not forget that with Euro we have become walking piggy-banks with all the coins in our pockets.
