Malta: A place where cultures have collided over centuries. This island is once more under siege. The assailants are now 'English language students'.
Sadly most of you think it's funny to bad-mouth an island that has withstood time & history, perhaps you should stick your back-packs back up where the sun don't shine (in your own country), because here in Malta it always shone brightly no matter what the trouble! Malta is certainly not perfect but it's got its good points too. Easy access to anywhere, warm long summer nites, entertainment, nice restaurants, friendly locals that will show you the way, everyone speaks at least 3 languages and whats more, where else can you buy pastizzi at 5am?
All i can say is that until younger hooligans started travelling to this mediterranean island, mostly with the 'excuse' to learn English, the place was peaceful, pretty clean & had beaches that offered spacious areas which were free from litter. Nowadays, indifferent youngsters fill the place with left-over takeaway wrappings, cigarette droppings, used condoms & vomit from the nite before (please refer to streets of paceville). Malta was never like this so to blame the locals on the state of affairs is quite rightly, incorrect. Please, when in Malta do as we do, show respect and hospitality for all, throw your trash in the bin, even if you have to caarry your paper around for an hour to find one! We may not have the latest technology here, nor the most modern of transportation, our roads may be bumpy but at least they make you laugh, our policemen may not carry guns but at least you can chat to them, and some village folk may be considered 'nosey' but they will be the first to help you if you're in trouble!! We give you our best welcome. But, if this isn't good enough for you, then don't come here at all.
