    Default Valletta "a city built by gentlemen for gentlemen"

    Just a few arty photos from last weekend. We didn't do any of the touristy stuff, (what with being locals ), so I'll add them to the thread as we do them.

    Looking at the menu, they like stuffing things don't they?

    It seems that way. Rabbit is the meat of choice and going by that menu they even stuff that.

    I nearly didn't get that photo. An American woman sitting near us was trying to chat and then said 'how old are you young lady'? I thought it was a bit of a strange question and I've not been called young lady for a long time, but just as I was about to say forty one she said 'four'? I could've died when I realised she was talking to my daughter because my mouth was already open ready to speak.

    That's the kind of embarrassment you can't just hang around after, I'd have had to make some excuse and left.
