A break to Malta


This post, and the next few as well, will not be about Copenhagen but Malta, as I've just been there for a short break from winter coldness. It wasn't exactly summer but spring was definitely coming. The photo here is a view towards the entrance to the Grand Harbour of Valletta with the saluting battery of Upper Baracka Gardens in the foreground. As it was the day of the feast of St Paul's Shipwreck the noon salute was not just a single shot, but the whole eight-gun salute.
