Americans, and other nationalities as well- it is most helpful if you plan on bringing a debit card that requires a PIN in order to make certain purchases. Many retailers require it, including metro ticket sales from machines. Otherwise using cash is required. When a credit/ATM card is allowable, it is usually only when accompanied by a current passport.
The strange letter Ø
If you don't have the character Ø on your keyboard it's a little bit tricky to type Øredev.
But if you know that the Unicode is 00D8 - then it will be much easier.
On Windows XP you just hold the Alt-key down and type 0216 and release the Alt-key. If you want to know more about Unicode 00D8; click here .
