We have lived in Santu Pietru, Gharb for about 18 months now and the only regular quarry lorries to come through were when the road and square were closed in San Lawrenz and then there were only 3 or 4 in the morning and the same in the evening and they came from the quarry on the cliff top between the two villages.
Rarely see one now roads are reopened.

being from Canada - was it likely that you were standing on the wrong side of the road waiting for the bus, or standing more than one metre away from the bus stop? Flag the bus, otherwise it will go past you & get off the IPad when waiting for a bus

I told her to stop fretting, we'll be fine! :drink:


I have to say, tell the missus she doesn't have to sweat, sorry fret

If you are from (damp) Derby & are old enough to remember the one coal fireplace or single gas fireplace heating system in the UK, then you will survive nicely in cold damp Malta. Just wear more woolies, socks too bed, a hot water bottle & don't forget to plug in the heated sleeping blanket.

Dehumidifiers a must have

Is it possible a generation of Brits have become softies in the past 30+ years getting used to double glazing & central heating, even if it is on a timer & turned off in the dead of winter?

Oh no. This was the terminus in rabat. We were standing right where the bus comes in to "park" at the main terminus.
