Seven new coronavirus cases confirmed on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY, one on Ithaka

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.8643 GBP
1 €UR = $ 1.0856 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1570 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9211 €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.

Boris Johnson Seems Lost In North East England While On The Campaign Trail

The prime minister left his partygate woes in London on May Day bank holiday Monday as he was pictured on his official Twitter feed with an ice-cream and surrounded by young people taking photos.

An accompanying tweet read: “It was a fantastic day to be out campaigning in Teesside, where we’re delivering a massive programme of investment as part of our plan to level up the whole of the UK.”

The trouble is, as plenty were keen to point out, he wasn’t in Teesside... the PM was in Whitley Bay, the seaside town on Tyneside.

‘Who’s Lorraine?’: Boris Johnson branded ‘out of touch’ after question about ITV star

Mr Johnson was interrupted by Ms Reid as he reeled off statistics about the Conservatives’ record on crime since taking office towards the end of the allocated interview slot.

“Lorraine is waiting to take on all the issues that you have brought up in this interview,” Ms Reid said, to which he responded: “Who’s Lorraine?”

Ms Reid seemed incredulous that Mr Johnson had not heard of Ms Kelly - who hosts an eponymous morning chat show on ITV - and replied: “‘Who’s Lorraine?’ Lorraine’s a legend.”

As the programme cut away from 10 Downing Street, the PM seemed to be heard saying on a studio microphone: “Oh, fantastic. Well, I didn’t want to talk to Lorraine.”

Hm, maybe BoJo & I (and lots of working people) have something in common: just maybe Bojo is too busy to watch Lorraine Kelly, or Good Morning Britain.

In his case he's busy stretching incredulity:

Greece holiday warning as Brits face £775 fine for easy mistake
https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/travel/8794910/greece-holiday-warning-brits-face-fine/

Probably not a great chance anyone will be fined for any of those (unless you're thinking of skinny dipping on Skala beach). Slow news day for the Scottish Sun?
