I took this picture mostly because the sky was really nice and blue. This is the Brzebbuga church square. Opposite to where the cars are parked is the church.

Last week the Islands of Malta where blessed with some rain and bad weather. I say blessed because we hardly had any rain this winter and the fields and crops really needed rain. It looks like that we are having a bit of a winter now as today is very windy and cold!!!!!!! This photo is taken from the birzebbuga sacred heart promenade.

Ta'Xbiex is found between Msida , Gzira and Sliema.

This time of the year here in Malta we have alot of fresh beans 'ful' (in maltese). They are lovely and sweet and can be eaten raw or cooked. I cooked mine with lots of garlic and olive oil , a couple of poached eggs , accompanied with tuna and a lovely loaf of maltese bread.

Alitalia flight from Milan had just arrived whilst I was at the play area inside our main airport. After everyone was out of the aircraft, the cleaning team went on board cleared and cleaned and the refuelling truck came. The service team also checked the tyres and the rest of the aircraft. Soon it was ready for its new passengers and took off again to the same destination, Milan Malpensa Airport.

This ship has been coming to Malta once a year in the last
seven years (approximately !!) anyways I always go on board this ship as they have books for sale with fantastic prices. I must say this year the children's books selection is great. I like to get cookery books for myself too.

Valletta water front has been beautifully done up (using old designs / architecture). The main purpose was the Mediterranean Cruise liners but also the wish to revive Valletta by night. Summer evenings are most popular , one can come for a walk , eat, have ice cream or even look at the shops. Starting from where I was standing there's a bookstore ,toy store, maltese pottery shop and more then further down are the restaurants. I came here on women's day as I was invited to go for a talk on board the Logos II . I shall post a picture of the Ship tomorrow.

Mdina is also called the silent city. One has to be very quiet inside the city, no cars are allowed in except for the residents. There are also some nice coffee shops inside and whilst we where there we had some 'pastizzi' what you can call cheese cakes. As you can see the streets are very narrow.
