Malta { 39 images } Created 10 Aug 2011

Malta is a truly wonderful place to visit. It lies in the middle of the Mediterranean and served as a crossroads for millennia, This tiny nation has an amazing history, with the oldest standing ruins in the world, they date from 1000 years prior to the pyramids of Egypt. All inhabitants speak at least two languages: English, due to their long association with Great Britain, and Maltese, whose roots date back to Phoenician, much modified by retries of occupation by many others, and spoken only in Malta. The Churches are some of the largest in Europe, and are magnificent. There are huge walls left from the Arab siege and reused for shelter during relentless bombing from axis forces. I have tried to capture at least some of the essence of this remarkable nation.
