Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.8940 GBP
1 €UR = $ 1.0553 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1186 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9476 €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.

Angler lands one of world’s largest goldfish in French lake

Goldfish are normally big enough to live in a bowl in people’s homes, happily whiling the hours away, scarcely taking up enough room to cause any trouble.

However, angler Andy Hackett managed to catch a much bigger version of the fairground prize favourite when he landed one of the world’s largest weighing more than 30kg (67 pounds, or five stone).

Harrison Ford gets a youthful makeover in final outing as Indiana Jones
‘De-aging’ technology is used to make actor, 80, appear as a younger version of the action hero in series’ fifth instalment

Harrison Ford has been digitally “de-aged” for his latest, and final, outing in the Indiana Jones film series.

Playing the role for the first time as an octogenarian, technology has been used to give the veteran actor a more youthful appearance for the film’s prologue, set in 1944, when he appears as a younger version of the action hero.

Belgium needs more incinerators to burn seized cocaine

Belgium has seized so much cocaine from smugglers operating through the port of Antwerp that it needs more incinerator space to destroy it, officials have said.

Authorities are concerned that depots used to store the drugs could become targets for robberies by powerful gangs seeking to recover their lucrative cargoes.

Bit difficult to believe this is correct, due to closing date, but I've been informed the Management Body of the National Parks of Zakynthos, Ainos and the Ionian Islands Protected Areas are inviting entries to a photo competition with a closing date of 25/11/22 (three days time). So rush out and take some snaps of Ainos / dig out old snaps and email 'em off to kefaloniageopark@necca.gov.gr

Winning photo will be on the cover of a new calendar.
