I am afraid no such luck--the dollar has recently fallen even against
the Zimbabwe currency, so what do expect? When I was in Poland last
Christmas, a dollar was worth about 4 zloty, now it is more like 3.10.
Even then, you will find Poland cheap (at least when it comes to things
like eating out, going to concerts and such, and public transport).

I am enjoying the flip side of this--my wife is going to Puerto Rico for
Christmas, and the fact that a dollar is worth only 75 Euro cents means
that her customary shopping sprees will be a lot cheaper this year.
