Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £0.9058 GBP
1 €UR = $1.1222 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1040 €UR
$1 USD = 0.8911 €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.

Four out of 10 Greek kids have a weight problem

Poor diet, lack of sleep and exercise, and very low rates of breastfeeding are seen as the main causes of children being overweight in Greece.

Experts also note the Greek mentality that associates the expression of love with the offer of large quantities of food, as well as celebrations with the consumption of sweets.

Greece could have up to 3.5 billion barrels in fossil fuel deposits, HEREMA estimates

Greece’s potential fossil fuels deposits may amount to 3.5 billion barrels of oil equivalent (BOE), according to an estimate presented by the Hellenic Hydrocarbons and Energy Sources Management Company (HEREMA).

The first exploratory drilling will be in the Ioannina area, by Energean. Seismic surveys have been completed in the Ionian (Energean/Helleniq Energy) and the data is now being analysed so that a decision can be made on whether to proceed with exploratory drilling.

5 key sepsis symptoms…Very important to be on the ball with these symptoms as my family have been all too aware of. If unsure always try to get advice asap. We lost our son to sepsis even though he was hospitalised but due to lack of follow up during Covid he sadly lost the fight. Also my husband has been hospitalised with sepsis twice but though not the same person he was before he thank goodness survived. Again in one instance being left during Covid and not treated in time and for the wrong diagnosis by telephone. Better be sure than sorry.!

Hope husband is doing well.
