Bussed to Mosta - cathedral very impressive, visited glassworks and, although the group was big, managed to view the glassblowing operation. There seemed to be very little time for those wanting to complete their purchasing transactions before the bus had to move on. There was a very quick look at Rabat, but Mdina proved to be a treasure. The guided portion through the town was all too short , followed by an independent fairly leisurely amble back to the bus. The public area outside the walls is quite entrancing with the horse carriages waiting for passengers. The pride of the guide to be Maltese and in the achievements of the islanders in the last half century was noteworthy. A Most enjoyable experience.
