Fabulous information you've given and thanks for all the trouble with the links! I'll have a good look through.

I wonder why Popeye was filmed there to begin with?

That's a great tourism resource. Some of the houses almost look like they're leaning to me in that popeye village. Perhaps that was a deliberate cinematic effect. I've not seen the movie.

And the salt pans are rather mosaic like. Must be interesting at times when the light hits them as you'd probably get a sort of rainbow effect.

I don't know why Malta was chosen for that movie. Especially when it must have been a pain to ship everything there. The buildings are crooked, made to look that way. There are even cracks painted on mailboxes and buildings to make them look worn.


The salt pans are sooo pretty IMO.

Malta has all these little crazy alleys and people drive INSANE on the roads. I can't wait to go there and actually see it!
