|Discussed over breakfast what we would do today. Thought we might try the Hypogeum, some caves & crypts from around 3000BC - no spots available today or tomorrow - failure No. 1
Thought we would go to Floriana. Set off to the bus stop - took 4 buses wait (first 3 all flew past full) - partial failure No. 2
Got to Floriana - nothing of note to see here except the botanical gardens, which were closed - failure No. 3
It is now after 11 so what better than tot go back in Valletta and watch the noon canon firing. Sit there patiently and move to the balcony above the firing ground and ............. we saw it, success!!
We toured a bit more of Valletta and just could not find anywhere appealing for lunch, so we jump back onto a bus and returned to Sliema and had another very pleasant time in the Compass.
We felt we had earned a walled earned chill out time back at the hotel to ready ourselves for the ‘Fryday’ Fish & Chip themed meal tonight. This was an OK meal, not quite living up to Alfred’s wow review. Retire to bed at a reasonable hour.
