November '09

So November 2009 has whizzed by! Between 2 trips abroad and a bought of the flu (not of the swine kind) I have stumbled upon December and I'm wondering what has happened in the meantime. Some how I've been snap happy throughout the month of November and below is a resume of my memories and lessons.

                       This is why I love living in Malta, where do you find such beautiful skies!?!

A friend of mine and I went out for dinner and I discovered Primitivo (above) and the road sign below...

                                                                        enough said...!

Moscow is tough and cold... in more ways than one could imagine

   I will definitely return to the multi- cultural city of Malmo, Sweden, although rainy it was beautiful and inspiring. Aside from Abba, Pippi long stockings and Bjorn Borg, Sweden has other great exports such as the crime story I read while there, it was a gift and is set in Malmo so I thought it appropriate. It is from the 1960s Martin Beck series "Murder at the Savoy' by Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo.  I'm intrigued and hooked!

2,600+ students graduated this year from the Univ of Malta and boy have we heard every single one of them celebrating around the offices from morning till sundown... what stamina!

And on the 30th November I bought a Christmas tree which did not fit in the booth of my car and eventually did fit into the back seat with a shove and a push... It now sits in my hall with the rest of my decorations patiently awaiting the 8th December... but that is another story or blog.
