Eighteen new coronavirus cases confirmed on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY, five on Ithaka

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.8674 GBP
1 €UR = $ 1.0901 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1529 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9173 €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.


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

Parents could face charges after recluse daughter’s body found decomposing into couch

The parents of a woman whose body was found decomposing in a couch could face charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter, officials say.

Lacey Ellen Fletcher, 36, was found dead inside her house in Slaughter, Louisiana, her body crouched into a crater of the couch in the living room, formed due to her anchoring to the spot for an unspecified amount of time.

Fletcher’s death has been ruled a homicide and the “cause behind her death stems from at least a decade of medical neglect”.
