- Malta/Day 1 -
Marcus, Bob and Dan (Bob's girlfriend) arrived on Friday in Malta.
The first thing that happened was that Bob and Dan's bags missed
the flight after a very tight connection in Zurich. So they arrived
late that same evening.
We were staying at the Pergola Club Hotel, perched on a cliff
overlooking the town of Mellieha, which has a very imposing Church
overlooking the sea. We had dinner in tourist Trattoria, where
everything was cooked for English pensioners, which meant no salt,
no spices, just boredom. We were ready to go home but we figured
it couldn't be this bad all over Malta.
Breakfast at the hotel next morning proved us wrong - baked beans,
bacon and something that must have been scrambled eggs in an earlier
life, were served up with as much enthusiasm as a mosquito has
for the state of the stock market at the close of Friday trading!
