...always seem to tire me out!
Weekends have been fun recently,but not often as restful as I would like.
Mondays are long, as after work I have a lecture until 7, which is hard work on the old brain.
Tuesdays are then just plain busy!By Wednesday I am into my stride and on a roll for Friday again.
Jeez, no wonder the weeks are going past so fast! It was not long ago that March was way off, but now it is here and the field trip approaches. You see my studies require me to spend a week in Malta at the end of this month.
I love Malta.
It is tiny, a small lump of rock between Italy and North Africa- if you stand on the battlements of the "city" that is in the middle if the island you can see the sea all around.
It is old - it has got prehistoric temples that are older than the pyramids.It is full of history - Normans, Arabs, The Knights of St John and their epic siege against the Turks, Napoleon, another epic siege in World War 2. All this packed into a country that you can cycle around in a day.
The people are nice too - well most are OK to tourists - last time I was there I met one who directed me to a large cliff that I could jump off... But on the whole they are nice folk who also speak English!
The food is OK, a sort of mix between Italian and North Africa with a few local specials like rabbit and snail thrown in. It is, however, easy to find good British style food, too, plus the omnipresent McDonalds, etc. And it is usually nice and warm at this time of year - t-shirts and shorts weather most of the time,occasionally wet and cool, occasionally hinting at the very hot summers that are on the way, when you get wind coming straight from the Sahara Desert. Mmmmm.
Malta here I come!
