Seven new coronavirus cases recorded on Kefalonia yesterday by EODY.

Today's bank rate:
1 GBP = € 1.1473
1 USD = € 0.8598

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.

Looking at the Kef forecast above it's probably best not to venture out in the car but if you do be wary in Vlakhata, road liable to be covered in mud and big puddles.

The royal wedding that might have turned an exiled princess into a queen

It was a wedding featuring two very popular royals and two ceremonies and it led to one of the most influential unions of the 20th century. The marriage of Prince George, Duke of Kent and Princess Marina of Greece, on November 29th 1934, was a day that changed the House of Windsor forever.

Lights out (and internet off!) in Skala... power outage caused by the extreme weather.
