When I first set up my bachelor digs on Crete, I used a local real estate agent to find a house for me.
When the agent took me in to show me the kitchen, I was amazed that the sink and the countertops were all made out of hand carved marble! The rental agent did not realize how much something like this would cost in the states.
When I mentioned that all this stuff was made out of marble, he quickly pointed to the cabinet doors under the sink and proudly said: "Yes, but look at these doors, they are covered with genuine formica veneer!"
