Hey, I never said I wouldn't go downtown because of COINS - a few bucks in change for parking would never deter us. We always arrived prepared with change (both kinds) every time we went downtown. I am NOT complaining one iota. We travel to a lot of different destinations/countries and we always adapt as we need to as far as customs, conveniences, etc.
Perhaps, in my last post I was just doing some wishful "thinking out loud" - I was NOT complaining about having quarters, Florins....we were more than happy to plug the old parking kiosk and spend some money downtown at the shops and restaurants.
