Kef fire risk 04/10/22: Medium

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.8968 GBP
1 €UR = $ 1.0057 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1151 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9943 €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.

Heating oil (aka diesel) available from 15/10/22 at a price of 1.60€ / litre - that's probably the Athens price, slightly more on Kef.

A young woman identified only as a tourist died on Tuesday after falling off the outcrop of the Areopagus rock, northwest of the Acropolis. State broadcaster ERT said she was 30 years old.

Police are investigating the incident, though it is thought that she lost her footing while trying to take a photograph at the iconic location, which is a popular hangout and photo-op spot among tourists and locals alike.
