Postcards from Malta

The Waffle Man is attending a conference in Malta this week. In sharp contrast to the odd late spring snow and hail we've had here in Seattle, as you can see...Malta is sunny and beautiful.

A bit of trivia: Malta is a small country in the central Mediterranean sea. Comprised of 7 islands, 3 of which are inhabited, this strategically located nation has been a member of the European Union since 2004.

According to Wikipedia, Malta is also home to the oldest freestanding structure in the world--dating back before 3500 BC.

Now, on with the photos...

Looking out on old town

Naturally, my German would find the one boat sponsored by a beer manufacturer!
Notice the Lowenbrau logo?

Typical narrow streets. See the crane taking up both lanes of traffic?
