Seven new coronavirus cases confirmed on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY.

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.1416
1 USD = € 0.8598

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

Anyone who's into Microsoft Flight Simulator might be interested to  know that Scenic Routes are likely to release a Kefalonia airport add-on, according to twinfinite.net

Football players carry dogs from shelter onto the pitch in bid to rehouse them

Zenit St Petersburg’s players walked onto the pitch with dogs in their arms before their match against FC Rostov on Friday (3 December) in an attempt to get them adopted from local shelters in Russia.

The heartwarming gesture was part of the ‘Dogs are better at home’ campaign, which started on 30 November, after Russia celebrated World Pet Day.

Zenit wrote on a Twitter post: “The aim of the project is to highlight to the public the responsibility and care required when having a pet and to help raise funds for local dog shelters.”

Renewing driving licences to go online

The procedures for the renewal of driving licenses and the issuance of copies of vehicle licenses are being digitized as part of a Transport Ministry initiative in cooperation with the Digital Governance Ministry to move services online.

The service concerns professional driving licenses that are renewed every five years, as well as other driving licenses that are renewed every three years if the holder is over the age of 65.

The licence can be printed at a police station and delivered by courier for a fee, removing the need to visit a local transport ministry office in person.

Euro banknotes to get first big redesign with 19-nation consultation
New theme being sought to replace current ‘ages and styles’ motif, says European Central Bank

Euro banknotes are facing a redesign for the first time since their launch two decades ago, with a plan to make the currency “more relatable to Europeans of all ages and backgrounds”.

The European Central Bank (ECB) said it was starting a process to select new designs for banknotes, in consultation with citizens from across the 19 nations that use them, before a final decision is taken by 2024.
