This is a typical Maltese Street. Maltese streets aren't very wide, this is a middle size one, there are smaller ones which are called alleys and bigger ones which can be find in the newly built parts of towns. In old villages you can find really sweet nicely kept alleys.

Today I did not go to any different location, so I could not take new photos, but I found this photo of fireworks from a local website. The photo was taken from the Mosta Festa. Mosta is situated in the northern part of the island, I will have to post a photo of their church there as they have a very impressive dome with was history too.

Whilst shopping this morning for vegetables at my local vegetable man, my son saw 'il-bebbux' snails in maltese. Here in Malta after the first rains alot of people go in fields to catch the snails, they fast them for some time and after they clean them in salt water or sea water. When all this is done they are cooked , boiled with herbs and wine and also as a salad with lots of garlic, fresh, tomatoes, basil and olive oil.

Sunrise for me is the nicest part of the day, I love the smell of the early morning and tranquility, especially when my kids would still be in bed and i can have my morning cup of tea. Sunset on the other can be very romantic, especially if you are sitting with your loved ones somewhere peaceful. Where in my real life sunset is very hectic, wash , feed and put the kids to bed then wait for husband to come home from work , then we eat and THEN when sunset would have finished and the stars would be out I would be ready to go to bed!!

This is the main church of our local town, each town church in malta has a saint as it's Patron and in summer every weekend around malta and gozo there would be a feast celebrating the local Saint , sometimes there are villages and towns that have more than one feast 'festa' in maltese. Ours is St. Peter. I shall try and get a better view of the church. Have a nice Sunday everyone.

This is another part of the promenade, there are buildings on the left side and the sea on the other side, obviously if you are walking facing the same way as I was when I took the photo. Summer evenings this is more packed with people going for their evening 'Passegiata' (stroll), the word comes from the italian word 'passegiare' to go for walk!!!!

This is part of the seafront, it's called 'St. Georges bay' boats are anchored here during the winter months.
On the otherside you can see some old buildings , there is an old chapel which is really small and pretty , might take some pictures of it soon and post them.
We had a small thunderstorm with rain yesterday which lasted less than an hour. After it was over my daughter wanted to go walk in the puddles with her wellies so off we went. This is how the beach looked, I took more shots as we walked all the way around the front, will post more later.

This is the Maltese airline, Air-Malta http://airmalta.com. We can see the planes going down and up from where we live as it is close to the runway. When they are coming down they're so close that we can see the underneath of the plane very clearly, and my son loves watching them!!!
