Cast Ashore

by wjw on May 8, 2023

So after 30 hours in airports and aircrafts, we finally washed up on the shores of Malta.  

Here is a photo of Valetta Harbor at night, taken from our hotel.

Valetta was named after Jean Parisot de la Valette, Grand Master of the Knights of St. John, who defended the island during the Ottoman siege. Valette is probably more famous as a reputed ancestor of my character Drake Maijstral.

Reputed ancestor? I wouldn’t say that where Roman might hear, particularly if he’s molting.

Of course Maijstral’s other reputed ancestors are Wotan and Noah.

Too late now, but there was a rather nice aquarium in walking distance from where we stayed, when we were in Malta (2016, I think…?): The Malta National Aquarium
