Malta: Medieval, Modern & Mediterranean
Malta is an island-nation south of Sicily surrounded by the Mediterranean. 2005 Peugeots drive over dirt, cobblestone, and paved roads; the predominantly old architecture, technology, and businesses make the newer ones conspicuous. Angelica graciously toured me around the archipelago relentlessly in her Peugeot.

I know Malta exists only because of this ad. Angelica saw this ad, bought a ticket to Austin, TX, where we met in March, and there she pointed out Malta to me on a map.

The world is closer than you think

I was told to note the doorknobs in Malta. Here is a door in Victoria with corresponding doorknob.
