Writing this has made me remember how many British and European places I have visited while crossing Montana. I have been to Essex, Dunkirk, Devon, Chester, Inverness, Gildford, Havre, Zurich, Malta and Glasgow. In an otherwise dull day passing through another British County or European city the size of 100 residents at most does bring a smile to the face.
I also had a smile brought to my face because on the outskirts of Malta there was an airstrip, as there are at most of the 500-1000 people towns I pass
Having arrived in Malta I found that the Motels on the main road were as grim as the morning had been, but I found the Great Northern Hotel to be a little more accomodating. It was not unfortunately beautiful, but the rooms were clean and large and as I would discover at dinner they served good food aswell.
Having showered I popped into town - well that is a little bit of an exaggeration given that you can see the centre of town in the picture below and it is about 40m long! However, I was relieved to find an electrical shop in town where I was able to find a cable for my apple. I bought my charger but had forgotten a travel plug - what a mug! However, I had back on day 3 or so found a delightful charity shop that had enabled me to find an american cable that would fit into the Apple charger and so give me power
I then popped down to a little store which served coffee, called the 3 sisters, in keeping with the 3 owners who were unsurprisingly 3 sisters. However, they did make a proper coffee, which I havn't had for a couple of weeks. Those diners and their never ending refilling of luke warm, mild dishwater coffee has it's purpose of a morning but it isn't an enjoyable coffee so I enjoyed my book and their brew with a smile before supping and heading to bed. Tomorrow would be a lovely day.....
