Since i last ´blogged´ i have been recovering from Global Gathering and hanging out with Barnesy in London. We have had a ball. Even though we haven´t done alot, as usual we were able to keep each other in stitches most of the time. I am now a huge fan of wigs and believe they are a gift that keeps on giving as the photos illustrate. I think at one point we had argued over whos turn it was to wear it. Heaps of fun for all!
I have been in Malta for seven days now and haven´t really stopped drinking. When i arrived at the airport i remember looking out the window and being reminded of a medieval scene from hundreds of years ago. The stone buildings and lack of colour made it look like a really dry place. I was soon shown otherwise by the renegade Rowina and was impressed by the panoramic views of both the island itself and meditteranean sea most areas provided
Most nights have started with a few quite drinks in Birzebugga followed by a trip to the `clubbing district´ Parcheval where i have seen most nights out. Drinking is fairly cheap and i have been drinking quite alot as you could imagine. So much so that at the moment i think you could use my wee as rocket fuel!
A boat cruise and a night at Paul Van Dyk broke up the routine and were both unreal. Paul Van Dyk played a cranking set from what i heard before having to leave because it was so hot. I expect to be pretty hot at a rave but this was out of control, it was like a sauna. I was dripping sweat and soaked in my own clothes when i finally left with people dropping all around me.
There are alot of religious festivals on at the moment which are pretty full on, i was warned that they can turn pretty violent so at the first sign of any trouble to run for dear life- Fairly bizarre considering they are religious festivals. The performance of club bands is fiercely competitive even though there is no real prize and they party hard through the night still arguing who played best. I´m enjoying the culture and the friendliness of everyone i have met.
I think thats about the rap for malta, i´ve been here way longer than i thought i would be and need to go and book the next stage of my trip whatever it might be before i start drinking again.
