An Estonian who stumbled across the Msida festa by coincidence has turned his chance discovery into an audio-visual love letter to his newly-adopted home.
Alksandr Belugi heard fireworks last weekend and decided to see where the noise was coming from. "Being a photographer, I grabbed my camera just in case," he told Times of Malta. "Boy, was it a great decision!"
The video footage he shot showcases some of the things so near and dear to Maltese festa-lovers' hearts, from lit-up churches to nougat sellers and the spectacular multi-colour firework displays.
"I think many Maltese take the beauty of their island for granted - and I'm not talking about the obvious stuff like the Blue Lagoon or amazing beaches," Mr Belugi said. "It feels like I was meant to be born here."
The photographer and law student - Mr Belugi is determined to master the Maltese language, practice law locally and become perhaps the first Estonian to speak Maltese - says the video won't be a one-off.
"I am planning on making more," he said, "because I wanted to give back to Malta and show its beauty through the camera's lens to the rest of the world.
"Everyone needs to know where Malta is and everyone needs to go there at least once," he added.

I spent a few minutes googling the name trying to see where I know it and coming up with nothing before I read this. Must have seen him comment on facebook. :P

EDIT: Ah, the organisation he forms (or formed) part of used to share an office with us. :mrgreen: Small world (or country)

At the beginning of the 1600’s, Malta was still ruled by the Knights of the Order of St John. One of these knights, Fra Giorgio Nibbia, had a chapel erected near the Sacra Infermia, the main hospital in Malta which was used to treat Maltese and foreigners, as well as providing a resting place for those on pilgrimage to Jerusalem.

The chapel was octagonal in shape and ornately decorated, but then there are a lot of impressively designed such buildings in Malta. What distinguished this particular chapel was what lay beneath, in a crypt which has become known as the ‘Chapel of Bones’. This crypt was built to house the remains of former patients of the hospital, but the human bones, skulls (and sometimes complete skeletons) were arranged in rather grisly mosaics and tableaux to decorate the interior of the crypt.

The crypt had gained a certain notoriety by the beginning of the 20th century, with postcards and lithographs such as the ones pictured here becoming macabre souvenirs for visiting sailors and sightseers on the island.

In World War 2 the Nibbia Chapel fell victim to one of the many bombing raids which levelled so many buildings in Valletta. All that remains today are the foundations, almost lost to the weeds in the grounds of what is now the Evans Building.

However it is believed that somewhere nearby – if not directly beneath the ruins of the chapel – the Chapel of Bones remains intact, waiting to be discovered. [source]

A power cut has been reported in Birkirkara, San Ġwann and surrounding areas, with Enemalta saying safety systems had been tripped by a "disturbance".
People in Gzira, Ta' Xbiex, Sliema, St Julian's and Swatar have all said they have no power, with users having started reporting problems at around 10:15am.
Many shopkeepers in Sliema have lowered their shutters and cafes have stopped serving customers, with the lack of electricity making it impossible for them to do business. Residents there said power returned briefly only to cut out shortly afterwards for a second time.
In a statement, Enemalta said that power had started being restored within 15 minutes of the fault arising, "but other areas had to be switched off as a precaution to allow engineers, fire fighters and other officials to safely enter the tunnel connecting the Malta-Italy interconnector and check the infrastructure."
The company was taking all necessary measures to gradually restore supply without putting national electricity infrastructure at risk.
Customers seeking assistance were encouraged to contact the Enemalta Customer Care team on 8007 2224. [source]

I've always believed expats like Malta more than the Maltese do.

EDIT: Italy in the bottom 10?? That can't be right unless they picked respondents solely from Mafia zones or something.
