Kef fire risk 26/09/22: Medium

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.9085 GBP
1 €UR = $ 1.0047 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1007 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9953 €UR

Based on Alpha Bank exchange rates, these are widely used by exchange agencies in Greece.
Other banks likely to offer a different rate which may be marginally higher or lower.
Banks and foreign exchange offices normally charge standard 2% commission.
You may get a better rate changing your holiday money in advance at e.g the
Post Office.
NB: some f-ex agencies advertise "No Commission".
Invariably, they deduct commission before they (don't) advertise the rate.
Foreign exchange offices are businesses, not charities.

Allegedly a shortage of firewood this coming winter, prices expected to increase by 30%-50%. Quite possible there'll be illegal logging of other peoples' olive trees.

Accident outside Limanaki (?) hotel on the Lassi Gyro around 18:30 yesterday evening, fairly straight bit of road but a car had veered off course and into the wall of a flower bed outside the hotel.
