Get Ready to Travel

Nero, your customs agent, has your passport.

Nero the Mint Police Dog is your customs agent.  He has your passport.
A passport is a little book that the government gives you
to prove that you're a citizen. Bring it whenever you visit
a foreign country to show what country you're from.

The Exchange-o-meter changes money from dollars to francs and euros.

Every nation's coins tell stories about that nation's most important
people, places, and ideals.  Japan's coins tell these stories too.

During our "Coins of the World" tour, you'll see
the yen that have jingled in Japanese pockets for many years,
with their rich symbols, legends, and images—Japan's "little round stories."

You'll have one hundred dollars to spend as your travel allowance.
On this day, the Exchange-O-Meter says your 100 dollars is worth
12,040 yen.  The rates can change
from day to day.
