And the coins which have a different side [much more than simply saying
dix euros/tien euro/diez euros/dieci euri] for each country can't be
unfamiliair and counterfeited ? Really I don't buy that argument. Did I
say I find the abstract building -- because none of the buildings
depicted had to exist lest it would be taken as a preference for a given
country where the building is found -- quite symbolic of this Euro(R)
baknotes : cold and « déracinée ». Brrr.
But enough. These Euro (no s please) symbolise quite well what I don't
like about the EU.
