Kefalonia greeted the news of the closure of banks calmly. No rush on Monday was observed. The price of petrol in some places slightly went up - the difference is 0.01 euro.
All local people, with whom we spoke on the upcoming referendum, expressed their intention to vote against the programme proposed by EU as well as a sincere desire to return drachma into circulation. That was the opinion mostly of the owners of studios and villas.
Although the restrictions on bank cards concern only the Greeks, we would recommend when visiting the island still carry a sufficient number of cash for the payment of goods and services - that will help Kefalonians in a difficult time for them.
