Valletta FC

We were lucky enough to be in Valletta while the local people were celebrating their local football team, Valletta FC, having won the League Cup.  We had noticed that streets and houses were decorated on our arrival in Valletta but, as the weekend approached, many more started appearing and it all seemed to be culminating in concerts and celebrations, which all looked like good fun.  We had discovered that Valletta is a very busy place during the day, especially when there are cruise ships berthed, but that when evening arrived, not that many people were walking about the streets.  However, our first weekend there was to be very different, with many people milling about enjoying themselves, and some of them dressed in their team colours.  What did strike me was that fact that these people were having such a good time, the children were also there in force, and there seemed to be no trouble whatsoever from the fans - quite unlike what we'd probably see in the UK or in other places around the world!!

During the holiday and over this celebratory weekend, I took a few photos that I'd like to share with you here.  The reason I'm doing a separate blog page is for the same reason that I done a separate one about cats!!  Some people don't like football, so they can skip this page if they don't want to see the photos!!

Was chuffed to get this one - the team with the cup!!
