Evidence that the British used to own the place.
My first Cisk (pronounced Chisk) - I was happy to see that they sold it on the plane. This is a Maltese beer, rather like a light beer - very refreshing after a day of fieldwork!
Flying over the alps.
Maltese farming is on a very small scale - these are the large plots!
Malta loves its churches. A population of devout Catholics, the keep them immaculate. This is just a small parish church. I get to the big ones on Saturday...
The view from my room (using the panorama setting on my camera).
One of my favourite views on the island (again using the panorana thingy). The tower on the right was built by the Knights of St John as part of a chain of look out towers. If Pirates or Turks were spotted a warning becon was lit on top. Think of the scene in The Lord of the Rings and you will get the idea.
