Four new coronavirus cases on Kefalonia yesterday, as confirmed by EODY.

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.148
1 USD = € 0.8386

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.

Car parked on Italian street for 47 years becomes tourist attraction

An abandoned car that has been parked for 47 years on an Italian street has become a local landmark, attracting tourists and visitors from far and wide.

Angelo Fregolent, 94, parked his Lancia Fulvia 1961 outside the newsagent he ran with his wife, Bertilla Modolo in Conegliano, north east Italy, in 1974.

Miniature Horses on Rhodes Threatened By Extinction

The Rhodian Ponies are the descendants of an ancient breed. They reach a maximum height of 31 to 45 inches (three to four feet) but are perfectly proportioned, with traits similar to that of full-size horses. They have very luxuriant manes and tails. Although they are identified as “Rhodes Ponies,” aside from their petite measure, they do not have the traits of ponies.
