Kef fire risk 17/09/22: Medium

Today’s bank rates:
1 €UR = £ 0.8954 GBP
1 €UR = $ 1.0292 USD
£1 GBP = 1.1168 €UR
$1 USD = 0.9716 €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.

Motorcyclist injured in accident yesterday at Krania has been airlifted to Athens for treatment.

A minor accident in Peratata yesterday afternoon when a driver lost cotrol and his car hit a wall resulted in minor damage but no injuries.

Kefalonia is a very peaceful island, relatively crime free, especially when compared to Corfu or Zakynthos. A while back they was a 'gang attack' on the nautical training college in Argostoli and Thursday a gang of youths attacked a younger group of students in the centre of Argostoli. Police being urged to crack down before it gets an established pattern of behaviour.

Body in advanced stage of decomposition recovered yesterday afternoon from the sea at Kamari, Limnos. No indication of identity but blue blouse and black leggings suggest the body of a female.

Update to overnight weather forecast: thunderstorms and rain looking quite possible. Certainly low grey clouds over Ainos when we drove over a little earlier today. Sunday so far looking like a sun day.
