Crete, my homeland
It is the "birthplace" of the Western civilisation, they say. It is the most beautiful island of the world (at least, that's what we Cretans think). Cretans are well known for their chauvinism or localism. There is a joke about that in Crete:A small Cretan boy asks his father:"Daddy, what does the word "chauvinist" mean?". And the father's answer: "Well, son, chauvinist is a veeery bad man who thinks that his homeland is better than Crete".
