Day 10, Valetta, Malta

Through open the curtains this morning and was surprised with the walled city of Valetta! Looks like every building is made out of the same type of stone. All limestone and lots of it still here.

Hagar Qim (pronounced ha jar keem) OLDEST STRUCTURE ON THE PLANET!!!! Carbon dated to be 500 years older than the pyramids. Now the site is tented to protect it from the elements. What an amazing travel discovery. Going to have to do more reading about this when we get back.

We have been invited to the sail away party which is on the helipad and the premier place to watch the port slip away (with champagne of course!). Fireworks in the harbour as we pulled away made it complete.

Sadly no pastizzi.

Tomorrow Sicily
