        A rags to riches story of interest to grecophiles who specialise in studying Crete

        The Cretan Diaspora spans the globe. Are you aware that there is avery strong Greek community in the Southern African region?
        This includes those Greeks who are Cretan in origin and made a name for themselves.
        One such person was Μichael Parantonakis who immigrated to Mozambique in the late 19th century.
        His nickname became understandably as “Cretikos”.
        Destined to make his fortune in the South African gold mines however he ended up in Lourenço Marques the capital of Mozambique.
        There, from humble beginnings he built a fortune as a beer maker in what is now known as the famous brand of beer called “Laurentina“.

        Here was a great find in the tumblr website that is an inspiration to all youngsters who have to know that most success comes from sheer hard work. That is what ‘Cretikos’, Michael Parantonakis found out. And where did this happen in Southern Africa – Mozambique!
