Random Pics in Valletta and Gozo



Taken in the harbour in Gozo - just love the little box-like tenders like the one in the foreground and background to the right




Sitting at Horizon restaurant, Qbajjar - food not great but such a wonderful spot. 
One of my favourites in Gozo. Worth just going for a drink and enjoying the
atmosphere.




As I was walking down Kingsway (sorry still call it that - cannot get
myself to refer to it as Republic Street!) I heard this beautiful voice
singing the Ave Maria. Above is where this voice came from. Poor guy was
boiling hot but at least he had an appreciative audience.



So......I did what I have wanted to do for along time. Visit the public loos
in Strait Street. During the time the Malta was a British base, Strait Street
was THE place to be for night life and a little bit more than innocent fun!! 
The public loos on the corner were as grotty and revolting as one could expect - 
somewhere you would not dare to enter even in the most desperate of situations. Fairly 
recently a company (think they actually sell bathrooms) had the brilliant
idea of doing up the loos in a nightclub/posh brothel style and so I just had to visit!
One has to pay a fee of 30 cents and you are given a written VAT receipt (YES - amazing)
by a very smartly dressed, good looking coloured chap. Have to add he keeps the whole 
place spotlessly clean and was extremely polite and we shared a good joke too. 
It was quite an adventure with mirrored stainless steel doors (seen above)
to enter the main loo area which you can see below. Doors into the loos are more like
a door into a posh cinema. The loo itself is decorated with a kind of cement 
finish which actually makes you wonder whether the walls are carpeted.
Photo of loo is below. It was a terrific experience and just had to
snap the event! If you are in Valletta it is a definite must DO. They are on the 
corner of Old Theatre Street with Strait Street, just a few doors down from 
Marks & Spencer.









The VAT receipt for 30 Euro Cents!
