Three cheers for Maltapost
While on holiday in Malta last week I read a letter in The Times entitled The Ups And Downs Of The Postal Service. Two years ago I was very unimpressed when postcards sent back to friends in England took 10 days to arrive and the letter reminded me of that experience.
To see if the situation had improved, on July 4, I posted two cards at a postbox in Sliema, one to England and one to Brisbane, Australia. Can you imagine my surprise when I was told that the card posted to England arrived safely at the recipient’s address on the morning of July 6?
So let’s have three cheers for Maltapost for an incredible service. Fantastic!
Digressing, since my last visit in 2010 I am delighted to see that those two rusting hulks that blighted the seascape in Sliema Creek for years have at last been removed. What an improvement. Malta is my favourite island and I like to see it posper. But there again maybe I am a little biased – I was born in Mtarfa at the David Bruce Military Hospital. I will be back to see the people of Malta again soon, I promise.
