Fifty nine new cases of coronavirus confirmed on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY, one on Ithaki.

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.166
1 USD = € 0.8563

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.


Ten day weather forecast for Kefalonia:
Fifty nine new cases of coronavirus confirmed on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY, one on Ithaka

This is an overall forecast, due to the mountainous terrain the weather can be very localised.

RNLI rescue 'incredibly lucky' dog that fell off 100ft cliff into sea
The RNLI have released footage of the moment they rescued a dog that survived falling 100ft off a cliff.

Max the border collie landed in the sea after plummetting off the edge of a cliff in Sussex, but incredibly, was found unharmed.

He had even managed to swim to an area where Newhaven RNLI could reach him after the coastguard initially failed to rescue him because of the tide.

“Given the dog had fallen over 100 feet to the beach, it was astonishing to see him apparently unharmed,” volunteer navigator James Johnson said.
