The time with Christine passed with a lot of laughter and a lot of conversations about different things
The rest of my day was spent at my favourite swimming spot again. It is hard to explain but after being here for 2 and a half weeks now I am incredibly relaxed and living at a pace I don't think I have ever before. I have had similar experiences at Repton with my family at Christmas time each year but that is more like camping and not really living like I am here in a city area. I have built up a strong sense of peace inside me, I am determined to try and keep it once I get home. Well at least until Christmas!
I caught up with Olga in the afternoon once again
Another treat in the evening with Liverpool playing in the Champions League. Down to my "local" to watch it with Joseph, Giuseppe and his other mate Joe. Unfortunately Liverpool went down 1-0 to a French team, that was not a popular result. I have not really mentioned it but I am the most brown I can ever remember now so look 100% Maltese, therefore EVERYONE just talks to me in Maltese. My lessons, whilst going well are not really keeping up with it so I only pick up snippets of what they are talking about. Whilst watching the game I would want to comment on something, but by the time I would work out how to say it in Maltese the play would have moved on. I ended up just sitting back and nodding wisely whenever Joseph, Guiseppe or Joe would comment on something, say "yes" or "no" and fill in the rest with facial expressions. :)
Yes, I was starting to feel very Maltese. I have even have a few Ricotta pastizzi in the afternoons walking home from the beach. I will have to get a bocci game in at some stage. What a wog. :)
