Flag of Malta  , Island of Malta,
Thursday, June 4, 2009

One little story so far...a typical Maltese circumstance...as I got on my bike...maybe that part is not so typical but anyway...I headed off to visit my grandmother (battling the Maltese roads and traffic - an adventure in themselves)...I started to whizz down a hill...no traffic for a change...when all of a sudden I screech to a halt (and believe me it was a screech with my brakes) as a car up ahead is stopped at the side of the road with its door open. I look to the opposite side...and this old man walks across the road as the chauffeur holds the door open. I stand partly shocked but mostly embarrassed as I realize it is Malta's ex-president - Guido de Marco. As he gets into the car the chauffeur apologizes for making ME stop...and as I cycled on I couldn't stop smiling at this typical situation in Malta...where you can so easily come across somebody like the ex president just crossing the road in front of you...and you just go on like its the most ordinary thing.....

I like the something acrobatic. But make sure you dont make all your something photos at lake baikal. I sure fishing would be great there as well.
