Malta Tuesday 25 April: Victoria - Dwejra

Today the Team boarded the ferry at Cirkewwa, on the northern most tip of Malta, to travel the short sea journey to the island of Gozo. Once there we made our way to the capital of the island Victoria (Rabat) to run around the ramparts of The Citadel.

Gozo’s Citadel rises steeply above the surrounding countryside, its impressive bastions commanding a superb view of the island. The Citadel owes its roots to the late medieval era, but the hill has been settled since Neolithic times.

Feeling rather hungry, the Team searched for a place to have their midday meal, and found a delightful place just off St Francis Square called Café Café. The owner was so pleased to see us and was so helpful and courteous. To our surprise he mentioned he had seen our picture and article in The Times (one of Malta’s national newspapers – www.timesofmalta.com ). We avidly looked through the newspaper and were pleased to find on page 7 a full colour photograph of the Team running to the University yesterday and an informative piece on the World Harmony Run. The owner of Café Café, Ferdinand Portelli, lovingly prepared large, tasty Greek salads for us and was so generous and kind to give us complimentary drinks.

With the Team now full of energy and rejuvenated after such a good meal we travelled to the western side of the Island to visit Dwejra Bay. Dwerja is perhaps the archipelago’s most spectacular natural landmark. Here, geology, time and sea have worked together to produce some of the most remarkable scenery on the Island – especially a coastal feature named as The Azure Window.

This is the Team’s last day on Malta, as early tomorrow morning we head back to Rome. The Team would like to have this opportunity to offer many thanks to the Malta Tourism Authority for arranging our transportation around the Island since we arrived on Saturday, and they will be kindly driving us to the Airport at 04.45 tomorrow (rather too early for most of the Team runners!). Also, thank you to the Gozo Channel Line company for the complimentary ferry tickets today for the whole Team.

The Maltese people have been so warm and generous, and all the runners have had a fantastic experience. The Team would like to express its congratulations to Jwalanta, our Malta co-ordinator for a great job in organising our accommodation, the school visits, and liasing and planning with various Maltese agencies for our stay to be a most successful and pleasurable one. The Team looks forward to making and renewing friendships on this wonderful Island, hopefully in the not too distant future.

You can send a message to the runners or read the messages.
