Καλή χρονιά

Fifty seven new cases on Kef yesterday, two on Ithaka

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.1567
1 USD = € 0.8566

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.

Not much happening at first so you can fast forward it to 5 minutes in, then it's quite spectacular:
