Flag of Malta  , Island of Malta,
Monday, April 23, 2012

We moved from the Grand Harbour Hotel to the Grand Excelsior Hotel for the International Symposium on Fireworks . . . the difference was radical, but then so was the price.

The Grand Excelsior had a view of the tourist town of Selima. The Grand Harbour Hotel had a better view of the Grand Harbour  . . . a working Sea Port. and the beautiful Maltese Falcon was anchored directly across the Harbour.


Originaly built for American venture capitalist Tom Perkins, Perkins and the yacht were the subject of a prize-winning biography, "Mine's Bigger: Tom Perkins and the Making of the Greatest Sailing Machine Ever Built," by Newsweek's David A. Kaplan. The book in 2008 won the prestigious Gerald Loeb Award for best business book of the year.

Further facts regarding the Maltese Falcon can be found at the Wiki link above.
