The first thing I noticed in Malta were the balconies; colorful, enclosed, wooden, and on every single home. How could you not notice them, they are a staple in the architecture here. So of course I thought I’d write a simple little post on the balconies of Malta accompanied by some photography of said balconies.
I started asking locals what the origins of the enclosed balconies were. Some people said they had no idea, some people said it was for gossiping (a term that I believe got a little lost in translation), and some people said it was Arabic. I had no definitive answer. But I still kept on taking photos of them.
There are no posts. Why not be the first to have your say?

I just spent 3 hours in the subway in Stockholm. No, it wasn’t stuck. No, I didn’t get lost. No, I wasn’t held hostage. I actually spent 3 hours in the subway on purpose.
