We have found plenty to see and do during our 33 days in Malta, yet we took it at a relaxed pace. We noticed that churches are to Malta as pubs are to Ireland - there's one (or two) on seemingly every block. As Paul drives us to the airport he explains that there are well over 300 churches in Malta - it's said that there is one for every day of the year. We certainly have seen at least 33 churches during our stay!
By now it is time for dinner. We stop in a local restaurant. We order the cheese pide and the Turkish meatballs for our meals and share them. The waiter brings us a freshly baked flat bread, followed by cups of puréed lentil soup, then the main courses and lastly small pieces of baklava for dinner. Each of the meals are each priced at 15 Turkish Lira ($5.07 / €4.54) and the food is very good! Of course, the cost of our beer and wine doubles the bill.
On Friday after a relaxing full breakfast we take the hotel shuttle to the airport at 11:30am. Once again we are lucky and the middle seat between us on our Turkish Airways flight is empty. The flight is delayed on take-off but arrives on-time and I use the 9 1/2 hours to watch five movies - a good way to catch up on some more recently released films.
