|Has been a rather lazy day before the full schedule ahead in the next few days.
I'd not closed the curtains so woke to a red sunrise over the harbour and after a god breakfast walked to the far end of the Sliema side and back exploring a little of the side streets and cross alleys. Very warm so a sit in a little shaded square with a bottle of water and a gelati for a spot of people watching was in order.
The path alongside the sea was fringed by tour boats and young people encouraging boat tours while the other side of the road is lined with cafes, very busy at night and many people eating outside and smoking.
Back to the hotel for a little siesta, a catch up of Australian news and then a swim in the hotel pool on the tenth floor. My room is on the ninth and sitting out in my balcony with a peppermint tea watching the tour boats come back in was a lazy activity before dinner.
Now about to meet my fellow travellers and go out for a meal.
