1030hrs – Departed Il-Hofra Z-Zghira, South East Malta for Grand Harbour marina, Valletta arriving at the berth at 1200 hrs. Joe arrived at 1230hrs from Frankfurt.


That evening we organised Ivan to take us for a tour of the harbour in his traditional Maltese boat, now used as a water taxi. I had met Ivan early after arriving at Malta and used him exclusively to get around Malta by water.
