On July 16th this year, the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel will be celebrated in Valletta. The city has been decorated for this special occasion. I would like to show you some street decorations that you can see here this week. On Monday, all this will be taken down and stored for next year. Let’s have a walk around the decorated part of Valletta:

And the special place, it is a…….farmhouse. In reality it looks like a small castle:
