This morning I work up and the view from our balcony was breathtaking and I had to take a picture (mainly to show off to family and friends from home).
Then at around mid day we had the craziest thunderstorm. It came on so quickly and heavy. The sea got really choppy, and we could see the boats struggling to come in to harbour. The roads were flooded in about five minutes, we experienced the loudest thunder, not to mention the lightening which was purple! My housemates and I just stood out on our balcony and watched in awe at the scene in front of us. I managed to take a picture of the thunder clouds rolling in before the rain started tipping it down.
That evening there was a beautiful subtle sunset over the city of Valletta, and once the sun had set you could see the whole town lit up and it's mirror reflection in the water.
So today I ended up with four very different pictures of the same view from my balcony. Looking at them reminds me how lucky I am to be here, experiencing this incredible country and all it has to offer.
