Video: A Quiet Moment on the Little Island of Malta

Malta is a hot and windy rock between Sicily and Africa with a distinct culture and language (Maltese is actually a Semitic tongue), a rich and fascinating history, and delightful people still living within some of the most imposing fortified walls in Europe.

I’m here with my TV crew, filming a special about Mediterranean cruising that will air on public television in the fall of 2018. It’s so hot and windy, and our crew is working with such focus, that I didn’t take any videos on my phone while we were outside. But in a quiet moment inside the Cathedral of St. John, I was inspired to share a little of what I discovered and learned today on this once-upon-a-time formidable island.
