Greetings from sunny Malta
Day two was better for hot sunny weather and the absence of the strong winds . Tomorrow marks the start of the working week and I turn my attention to the lorries after having really given the buses a pretty good bash. I met up with Carl and Glenn last night at the small Italian restaurant nearby we are all staying quite close at Spinola bay just up from the love monument which spoilt the backdrop of the bay in photos but now they've put some small advertising hoardings up on the bus stop on the bend which destroys the shot altogether. I may be tempted tobdovsome night shots at some stage but after a pretty hard days filming my leg and knee don't really want to do snything much . We are meeting up with the bus club on a group visit I think there will be nearly ten for dinner which will probably fill the Italian restaurant there was a queue last night I wouldn't mind giving the Irish pub a hk one night with done Guinness. I started out with a quick trip around the docks eyeing up locations ready for Monday then went back to Valletta and did shots from the bottom end of the bus station as they leave I didn't do much there yesterday as the weather went downhill. Got some great shots they were setting up ready for the Remembrance Day ceremony but there wasn't any formal diversion and services and traffic were just excluded from driving down floriana . The I went to Paola and the sun came out again after a few dark clouds passed by with a tiny drop of rain. Nothing much different in the bus front although I'm sure I'll get some more stuff amongst the trucks next tel days. I then went to the built up central areas before ending up at biggiba and then up towards Gozo end with some nice elevated views before I took the roads to west side and then ended up at medina where I finished off the lads cruised by in their hired car thought at first it was more locals a bit heavy with their horn. The roads have got worse but helped by the storm which has wasted away the surface in places and thee are still areas where they haven't gathered up the fallen trees. I slept ok through the bad antics of pace ills on Saturday night as the double glazing is enhanced by ear plugs and cesk bitter. Mandy is still at sues they went to another national trust property but shell be home tomorrow and get all the DVD orders dispatched . I might go and gavexacread and relax for an hour we are all meeting up at 7 for dinner we had coffee at mc cafe last night before bed with the panoramic via of the buses which ae quite intense tight through the night on a Saturday there we quite a few sights to behold.
