Iceland #2 How Much Does This Tomato Cost?

Figuring out how much stuff cost in Iceland is like a 7th grade math problem.

First - Convert Icelandic Kroner to dollars : 1000 Icelandic Kroner = $7.50
Note: They use a comma to indicate separation between whole numbers and the decimal value. In other words, the price of tomatoes in the photo of 453,29 we would write as  $453.29.

Second - Convert Kilograms to Pounds : 1 kg = 2.2 lbs

Third - Convert Meters to Centigrade : Whatever ...

Fourth - Say "Forget about all this, we're on vacation, just buy it"
