Four new coronavirus cases on Kef yesterday, according to EODY.

Kef fire risk 25/10/21: Low

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.1507
1 USD = € 0.8348

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.

Greece Pays Deadly Price for Lifting COVID-19 Restrictions

Admittedly tilting toward an economic recovery, easing health restrictions and not requiring COVID-19 vaccinations has seen cases rise past 3000 a day in Greece, putting the country in the wrong line with the rest of Europe - and deaths rising.

The train will shortly be arriving in 1983: a boyhood rebuilt in Britain’s biggest model railway

A 60-metre long model railway - he must be chuffed!
