It’s that time of the year when Valletta FC win the football league, again, and the whole city is buzzing with red and white flags. Its also the time for the famous funeral were Valletta FC supporters stage a mock funeral complete with life sized coffins, mourners, priests, nuns and other personalities.

A national holiday in Malta, the Armed Forces of Malta held their annual Republic Day Parade on the 13th of December in Valletta, in front of the President, Prime Minister and distinguished guests. A huge crowd of Maltese and tourists also enjoyed the parade that was held in St.George’s Square.
Yes i know that as a resident of Valletta the title of this blog post ‘A tourist’s afternoon in Valletta’ is not quite right but look at it from another point of view. Although I have been living here for around 9 years I still shoot on a daily basis. The light is never the same and people, shops, doors, paint etc change over time.
With Valletta 18 round the corner, Malta’s capital city is changing at such a fast rate that even residents struggle to keep up.
