Thirteen new cases of coronavirus confirmed on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY.

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.1349
1 USD = € 0.84

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.

Firebomb throwing becomes a felony

The government reintroduces harsher sentences for the throwing of firebombs, especially at protest rallies, making them a felony.

The bill also aggravates sentences for a series of crimes...

Hm, wonder if that includes throwing firecrackers at Paska?  :papa:

Man caught on film beating pony with pole 15 times

Shocking footage shows a pony being beaten by its owner who said "it's gotta learn" as he repeatedly whipped it with a pole at least 15 times.

John Reid, 31, has been banned from keeping animals for five years after the shocking footage led to a prosecution following an RSPCA probe.
