I'm almost ashamed to suggest this, but I'm looking into the value of the Turkish Lira ... While the Turks will never really fully recover from the horrors of this tragic earthquake, they will certainly come up with the 7 or so billion it will take to recover financially.

Even though Turkey is not considered morally or fiscally worthy of joining the EU, it is too close to Europe to fall apart completely. Therefore, Turkey is likely to get significan assistance from its neighbors.

So, considering the circumstances, I'm looking into converting some dollars or sterling into TL's for, say, a year or so while they rebuild. I assume the value of the TL has plumetted, but cannot find decent historical data. Any views on how to research whether this idea makes sense?
