i would be VERY careful when investing in anything that might have currency risk. Several years ago I "invested" in Icelandic CDs paying about 10% interest. It looked good and worked for a couple of years until the Icelandic krona collapsed. I ended up losing almost 30% of my capital.

If you are looking for income you might want to look at preferred stocks. The guys on the Income Investing thread are very knowledgeable.

A combination of REITs, royalty trusts and preferred stocks might be able to give you what you are looking for.
