Also, I would like to know if you had the same opinion about 7-10 years ago. If not, what were the most important reasons you changed your opinion??
I hope you can give me some answers, thanx very much for that !!

I think you'd better mail to Yannis directly. He is the editor of the Crete Gazette.
I'm not a Cretan but I have a steady relationship with the island. I have seen it change through the years from a virginal maiden into a cunning lady due to the influence of the hordes of tourists looking for a cheap place to get drunk.
People who are looking for what is left of the "cretan way of life" avoid the north and dig into the rural areas of the south (from east to west). But also in these areas some places start to find out about the ¤ influence.
Small resorts that expanded too fast on demand of cheap tour operators now have problems in retaining their natural identity.
Let me know if you want to hear more.
