Sixty one new cases of coronavirus confirmed on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY, six on Ithaka.

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.1604
1 USD = € 0.8541

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.

Cost of living squeeze continues as inflation rises by 5.4% - highest in nearly 30 years

ONS chief economist Grant Fitzner said the increase was driven by rising food prices, furniture and clothing.

Household finances are being squeezed across the board as gas and electricity tariffs have also seen staggering rises and supply chain problems are pushing up costs across the economy.

The Bank of England has forecast inflation to hit 6% in April.

The English Socialite Who Caused a Stir in Greece with Famous Affairs

Jane Digby, who later became Lady Ellenborough, was one of the most famous adventuresses of her times, even having an affair with King Otto of Greece — and his father — and then going off to live in a cave with the Greek general Chatzipetros.

Her exploits were so daring for the age that they almost defy belief even today, to the point that reading any recounting of her life sounds like fiction.
