A group of UIAD students (and some husbands) visited Malta for one week in September. We discovered an extraordinary history, culture, religious fervour (the Feast of Our Lady in Zabbar with its illuminations and fireworks was something to see) and extremely hot weather! History and culture played a big part on the trip but we had fun too and enjoyed the local specialities (kennie, rabbit stew, pastizzi, prickly pear liqueur) and – of course – speaking English!
There are more UIAD English trips to come. Look at the blog regularly to find out more about trips and other UIAD English news.

The sun is hot. We are tired, we are hungry, but this last temple (3600-2500BC) in the heart of Tarxien deserves to be seen.

What is that?
Ancient ruts. Who – or what – made them, nobody knows.

St Marie Church in Mosta is built as a rotunda supporting a colossal dome; it was completed in 1860 and can hold 10,000 people. On 9th April 1942 a bomb went through the dome and did not explode – a miracle?
