I had missed out on the Grand Masters Palace last year as it was closed for restoration, as far as I could see it was still quite dilapidated but interesting nevertheless. Tonight was Notte Bianca (White Night) an evening arts festival, after an idea started in Paris. It promised great things but did not quite deliver and it was a bit of a damp squib in my humble opinion, at least the lights looked pretty.
I managed my first morning run of the holiday today followed by rum baba and coffee for breakfast, what an indulgence, but I felt that I had earned it. After a refreshing shower I walked into Valletta via the botanic gardens and encountered this Tangy lookalike. The afternoon was spent across the harbour exploring Vittorioso.
Ryanair came up trumps and brought me safely to Malta and the transfer company only kept me waiting a short time before dropping me near the apartment I am staying in for a week in Il Gzira just next to Sliema. This is the Marina at the end of my road
