Kef fire risk 08/08/22: High

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.8680 GBP
1 €UR = $ 1.0540 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1521 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9488 €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.

Locals out and about in Markopoulo and Arginia looking for little snakes so they don't get crushed by the crowds during the upcoming snake festival. Several 'rescued' so far.

There is nothing that users can do to protect their information in this issue

A Twitter breach has allowed hackers to find the account names and email addresses associated with millions of accounts.

This includes accounts of people who would rather keep their information pseudonymous, such as whistleblowers and celebrity accounts.
