This week we lost our main Gozitan tourist magnet, but if we were to learn something from this, it would be to appreciate such spectacular scenes before we lose them.
If you are a Malta Public Transport Bus Driver please stop reading at this point. I do not mean to offend anyone by this article.
One of the major points that really struck me during AIESEC Malta’s debate on critical think was made by Linda Sonnichsen, from JA Alumni Europe and former president.
‘Malta? Well there are lovely beaches and some very nice weather but other than that the only thing I could remember is how heavily overpopulated it is. Houses upon houses, terrible roads, promenades swarming with people. After a couple of days there I began feeling claustrophobic. Up to this day I still can’t understand how no one there does anything about the mess’. This was the answer I got after asking a middle-aged man who had visited Malta 5 years ago on his opinion of our country. I felt so contrite; I stood there, not moving, with absolutely no idea of how to answer him. It suddenly dawned on me that whilst I often complained about the same problems as this man, I never did anything about it.
