Today we went to Marsaxlokk for the Sunday market. Here are some examples of things to buy:
Kalle is working today, so I took the Anderssons to Valletta by bus. The plan was to check out the christmas sale, but we didn’t buy anything.
We didn’t have all the traditional food we usually eat in Sweden on Christmas Eve, but Jan-Olof brought inlagd sill from Sweden and I made rödbetssallad after my grandmother’s recipe. We also had Findus småköttbullar and knäckebröd that we bought here in Malta. Kalle found som kind of sausage that looked like prinskorv, but it didn’t taste like prinskorv. The only thing I missed was julskinka.
First we stopped outside Naxxar to look at the view.
After Naxxar we went to Bahrija and Fomm ir-Rih…
…and then across the country to Vittoriosa.
We started Christmas Eve by taking our guests on a sightseeing tour. When we left Swieqi we saw two Volvo cars. I don’t think I have seen more than 5 Volvo’s here on Malta, so I had to document the moment.
Kalle’s parents Gunvor and Jan-Olof and one of Kalle’s three brothers, Pelle, arrived today to celebrate christmas with us. I am so happy to see them and I’m glad they wanted to come and visit us!
