Kef fire risk 06/06/23: Low

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £0.8851 GBP
1 €UR = $1.1086 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1298 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9020 €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.

Nafplio: Couple fell asleep naked inside a car in the middle of the street!

Drivers witnessed on the Drepanos-Asinis road in the outskirts of Nafplio, early Sunday morning, a scene that caused shock and laughter.

Traffic was brought to a standstill as a vehicle was stationary in the middle of the roadway, and, despite constant honking, no one appeared to move it, Proto Thema reported. When they got closer to see what was happening, they were surprised to see a couple sleeping... naked inside!

Since the passengers did not seem to wake up from the banging on the windows, the drivers notified the Police, whose men arrived at the scene and managed to... wake up the sleeping passengers, who moved the car, freeing the road.

Police, apparently, saw the fanny side of things and also saw the driver's point when he said they'd both been tired.   :lol:

Allegedly a problem with stray dogs in Argostoli main square, two women said to have been attacked at different times, unclear if both by the same dog. One was walking a dog, which may partly explain things. No mention second female was.

Mykonos rip-offs are so well known now I find it difficult to feel too sorry for them.

Karpathos: Donkeys rescued from remote beach

Two donkeys who got stuck on a remote beach on the Dodecanese island of Karpathos have been taken to safety following a two-hour rescue operation by local emergency services.

The animals, who had been left by their owners to graze freely before they would be put to work during the summer season, had wandered down to an isolated beach but were unable to climb back.

Passing fishermen noticed them and alerted the local fire service.

After some effort, the joint operation of fire officers, port officials and volunteers managed to put lifejackets on the donkeys and, using a boat, to tow them to safety.

Two donkeys in life jackets being towed by a boat... what a great video clip that would've been!
