Mdina entrance by night


This is the entrance to the old capital, Mdina also known as the silent city. Mdina is known to many as a medieval, walled city. Its history, however, dates back at the very least to the classical period, when the whole area, including the present-day town of Rabat, formed part of a Roman settlement.

Dry and hot

This is a photo to show you how dry Malta is in the summer. Winter scenery in Malta is lush and green and spring time is nice too, however for me summers here are way too long and too hot :).

Swimming anyone??

Since I had to take the long way to go up to Siggiewi the other day I was able to stop for a couple of shots. This here is 'Wied iz-Zurrieq' a place to visit if you ever decide to come to our over heated island. Don't worry the bus strike is now over and you will be able to get to this place and then you can either have a dip or visit the lovely blue grotto which is found round the corner by taking one of the boat rides available.
If you enlarge the photo you can see people swimming down there.

...bus strike......

At the moment here on the very hot maltese islands we have a pathetic situation. I say pathetic because it really is. There is no need to go into detail on the bus service provided in Malta because I am sure that somehow you either have heard about it or encountered it yourself. So right now bus drivers are on a strike , because the monoply is being taken away from them. Ha!Ha! If you want to read more about it either google it or visit website. I've taken this photo two days ago next to Malta International Airport, where you can see tourists stranded and policemen standing by to keep the situation 'undercontrol'.

row row row your boat gently down .........

the bay.......This is a small boat I found on a quick de-tour trip I've taken on my way home last week. There is only one oar inside and this kind of boat is mostly used by the fishermen to get to their big boats who would be anchored metres away from the shore.

Malta Freeport by night......

This is the Malta free port by night, in my opinion it looks much nicer at this time. I do not like to look at those big cranes during the day, in fact for me they look like big dinosaurs invading our bay.......

Siggiewi Skyline....

Siggiewi is in the South West of Malta. It is a traditional and unspoilt Maltese village with lots of traditional houses. Wander around the side streets and appreciate the old world charm of this parish village which dates back to 1436.

At the centre of the village is a huge square where the locals gather. The parish church of St Nicholas.
