A great Drive around the country
Quite a hot day. Carmen collected us for a drive to the caves. Saw some different country side and an interesting cave (Ghar Dalam - meaning cave of darkness - google it). Here they have excavated some very very old bones of animals etc. A big history. Of course we did go into the cave. This is not my favourite pastime. I feel too couped up, anyhow I did survive it. Had a very nice lunch beside the bay at Marsakala. Pretty place with those colou...

NICE TODAY
Monday in Malta- woke up to a very mild day. Slightly windy which kept the humidity at bay. We had a nice walk to Ghar-id-dud ([i]aridoot[/i])where we had a light snack and sat and viewed the shoreline. Lovely. Went back to the flat for a rest (???). The evening we visited Carmen's aunt Cettina where we had afternoon tea and a long chat. Carmen's cousin Carlo and his wife Marlene also were there. It was just great to meet up with them again...

Aunt Dodi
We journeyed to Aunt Dodi this afternoon. She now resides in a place for old Nuns. She was so excited to see us. Her place is very nice. She showed us around and was very proud to show off her place. We enjoyed a real good talk. No, there was no wine involved. She did, however, commented on her experience with her Australian nieces and nephews who she saw last year where she had a little too much wine. She even sang the song she sang at that...

SOPHIE
Carmen had a very close friend, Sophie, when she was in Malta 40 odd years ago. She did get in contact with her before we left and informed we will be in Malta for a holiday. No one would guess that she lives not 200 metres from where our flat is here in Malta. Such a surprise. We met up with her and husband and chatted for some time. We are doing a lot of walking trying to get rid of some fat tissue that has built up around the middle. Eat...

HOT DAYS IN MALTA
This is a hot place. Although the locals say it is unusual to be this hot at this time of the year. Anyhow, regardless how hot it is we still had to do our touristy (is that a word??) bit. Our flat here in Gzira is out of the way a little. That is what you get when you select from the internet plus keeping the dollars in check. Given we are here for 4 weeks we had to select a place to suit our budget and, it is quite a nice flat. Again w...
