Dollar zoomed up to 51.04 right now on XE, a new 10 year or more record.

Yes, to 10 year record, but in the years from 2001 to 2007 the USD vs the PHP was in its prime, hanging in there from 50 to 58 for about 6 years.  Here is a link to that chart and one can hope that the 58 mark can be reached once again (if you have USD which I don't :huh: )

My first trip to PH was in the mid 90's and I see the exchange was around 25 then.  I remember thinking everything was dirt cheap compared to the U.S., so I guess everything is relative to your current circumstances.

Up an up it goes,...where it will stop no one knows.  Currently 51.31 per dollar.  Just remember, what ever goes up will come down!  Sooner or later.  Enjoy it while it lasts.:SugarwareZ-005:

All of the rates usually drop a bit leading up to Christmas when the ofw's start send their Christmas money home.

51.46 now, really zoooming!  Just think of all of those extra pesos you would have if you waited!

Oh wait, I exchanged last Thursday  :bonk:

No one knows the tops and no one knows the bottoms!
