St Paul's Grotto
This is the Roman cave jail where St Paul and St Luke were held prisoner by the Roman consul Publius, subsequently converted, after they were shipwrecked en route to Rome from Damascus in 60 A.D. It's under St Paul's Cathedral, Mdina

The course is dampened and raked between each race.

We sent Harry Lemon to Malta to report for the Willy on this Mediterranean island, and what does he do? Sends us hundreds of pictures and no text. I told him, for God's sake Harry, select a few of them and add captions. Don't be making us like captive audiences in the old days, having to sit through hundreds of Uncle Harry's holiday slides.
