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.

From blue and white to the colours of the rainbow: Greece’s new tourism campaign embraces LGBTQI diversity

Visit Greece, the official website of the Greek national tourism organisation (EOT), introduced a new section promoting Greece as a prominent LGBTQI-friendly destination.

The April Visit Greece newsletter titled ‘With the colours of the rainbow’, boasts content promoting Athens as a city “colourful, welcoming and alive” and Thessaloniki as “Open to all”.

Among the most popular destinations for the LGBTQI community is Mykonos, hailed as the “queen of gay nightlife”. However, its appeal extends beyond partying, offering serene coastal retreats and relaxation options.

Other equally enticing destinations on Visit Greece include Lesvos and more specifically the town of Eresos. Santorini, Skiathos, Corfu, and Crete are also highlighted, each offering their unique charm and welcoming atmosphere.

Exclusive: The Elgin Marbles caused a huge diplomatic row between the UK and Greek governments last year, but if the artefact was based in Scotland, the nationalist executive would give it back to Greece.

Unpleasant news from Zakynthos: a few days ago a 49 y-o local in Agios Dimitrios, Alykes, committed suicide by shotgun. Following this his two children, aged 12 and 9, contacted a neighbour and informed her that their mother had been abusing them for the past three years. The neighbour contacted the police who arrested the mother. Doctors at Zakynthos hospital confirmed signs of abuse, children in the care of Smile of the Child.

Body of a clothed, unidentified male, recovered yesterday morning from the sea at cape Arapis, Mount Athos.

Unidentified body recovered yesterday afternoon from the rocks at Pammfila, Lesbos. More likely death by falling rather than drowning.

Thirteen fox cubs rescued by Gloucestershire animal rescue centre

An animal rescue centre has said it already has thirteen fox cubs to look after, as it gears up for its busiest season.

Staff at Vale Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre, near Tewkesbury, said they are working flat out to keep the young pups bottle-fed, while also preparing for the arrival of many more injured animals.

"We're coming up to our busiest season, the baby season," said wildlife care assistant, Megan Phillips.

"We will start to get the baby birds, the fox cubs, the badger cubs - every sort of baby now.

"The winter season is more about rescuing hedgehogs and pigeons for us, but we are starting to step into our baby season, which does come very quickly.

"We always go from nothing to everything very suddenly!"
