Notes:
Avoid Euronet ATMs at tourist sites.

The ATM "exchange guarantee" is a scam and hidden fee that should be avoided.

Are you saying that he doesn't know what he is doing?
AFAIK he has been studying and working on this for at least a decade
If you don't need or don't want an eruv then don't use it

Interesting how some people "react" when they hear something is not so kosher ....
I am grateful to hear that the Eruv is not ok (not that I would carry on Schabbos in Bud)
