Today is 4th Nov tumewasili saa mbili asubuhi na tutakuwepo hapa mpaka saa saba mchana ndio tuta departure ila watu wote wanatakiwa kuwa ndani ya meli by saa sita na nusu. Valletta ni capital ya nchi ya Malta, inajulikana kama Il-Belt (English: The City) in Meltese. Valletta ni mji wa zamani sana ina majengo ya 16th century na kuendelea, built during the rule of the knights of St. John of Jerusalem. Kwa wale wasoma biblia kuna sehemu mji huu umeelezewa pia. Mji wa Valletta ulitambuliwa rasmi kama a World Heritage Site na UNESCO in 1980.

Tulipata bahati ya kupata booking ya kuona mji wa Hypogeum ambapo unasemekana ni kati ya miji ya zamani sana dunia ulikuwepo hata kabla Jesus kuzaliwa. Mji huu uligundulika na wajenzi maana uko underground, uligundulika wakati watu wameshaweka makazi yao juu. Sehemu hii inahifadhiwa kwa hali ya juu picha za namna yoyote ndani haziruhusiwi kwa hiyo tulishindwa piga picha. Wenyewe wanatania wanasema ni experience ya kipekee uhitaji picha inabidi uweke kichwani kwako tu :)

Ni kazi sana kupata booking ya kutembelea Hypogeum unatakiwa kufanya booking angalau 3months kabla ya kwenda maana kuna watu wengi wanasubiri kutokana na sheria yao ya kuachia watu wachache sana kwa siku kuingia ndani. I was happy to be one of them thanks to my smart husband :)

Baada ya kushangaa Hypogeum tukaingia mitaani kidogo kushangaa shangaa kabla ya kurudi melini. Katika tembea tembea nilishangaa kuna sehemu kulikua kuna waafrika wengi nilipouliza nikaambiwa kuna kambi ya wakimbizi eneo hilo. Inasemekana wanavuka na boat kutokea Africa, Malta haiko mbali na bara la Africa ni bahari tu ndio inatenganisha.
