R wired the money to InTuscany on Friday. He used his bank, Wachovia. What a rip off. There was a $40 up charge (my bank charged $20 last summer) but they converted the money at a rate of 1.13 dollars to Euro when the rate at the time was 1.08. R is calling the bank this morning to find out why. It's a racket; they get you coming and going.
