In Topic: Of Crete And The British Here . . .

16 February 2010 - 01:13 AM

I have been looking at my post of three years ago and you know what, I wouldn't change a word.

Looking back I have seen the various changes/disasters in the house developers. I have seen so many British dreamers return to the UK. I have spoken to so many British immigrants that I am sick of the words 'I hate it here".

Why do they hate it? For precisely why I said they would: the lack of Englishness here, the lack of fish and chips, burgers whatever. The lack of this and that. Who can say. They come here expecting England in the sun. They have no idea of Greek/Cretan history or culture and they complain, over and over again.

Actually, lately, some shops/supermarkets are offering British goods, but it does not matter - they want Indian and British food, UK plumbing and God knows what else.

Yes there are a few, a very few, who love this island, know it for what it is and respect it's history or whatever. I reach out to them.
