How long will it last?

I thought it would last my time

The sense that, beyond the town,

There would always be fields and farms...

 

[Philip Larkin (1922-1986), British poet. "Going, Going."]

 

With a mere 316 sq. km of land and a population of just over 400,000 (and thousands more uncounted visitors) Malta is in the 8th place in terms of population density. There are just too many built up areas in Malta and it is actually quite an achievement that we can still see open terraced fields like the ones in Sannat featured in this image.
