Well over the do nothing we caught a bus into Valletta today, Sunday here & seemed like everyone decided to do the same. Spent 5 hours out & about...the cloud helped no end! The iconic Maltese homes are in abundance... every street we turn. Some of the limestone is really worn, however this is over quite a significant time. The harsh salt air comes from all coast directions being an island of 27km x 14km. We even notice swimming is easily buoyant & many people with sun hat/glasses tread water for hours. Notice on windy days a little plastic coming ashore...but not much. The sea water appears very clean....& extremely good for the skin. So far at least one swim a day. Simply enjoy the 2min beach we are still dripping by the time we get home.

Each place we go our hosts offer something a bit different depending on the country. We've had a couple of power cuts which are a part of life. Every country has their uniqueness. The relationships we develop with each are embracing & fun. The old city with the new is not to be taken for granted. It is extremely difficult to manage the old cities with the new age.

Malta is the 5th most densely populated country in the world. 416,000 inhabitants (not including we tourists 2.6million in 2018 a 13% rise). Plus the work visa population.

A few days away & we are off to Spain a first for me. Although I don't want to rush this one...quite relaxing.
