I have been visiting my hometown very often recently and rediscovering Haz-Zebbug has been a wonderful and unique experience. I also met a lot of people along my routes who were curious to know why I was taking photos. Haz-Zebbug is not a touristic place, so having someone shooting around made the locals question.
I was always greeted warmly, cordially and everyone had a story to tell. The lady above (I will eventually remember her name), was cleaning these big windows in Triq Sant'Antnin. She was shy at first because she was in her cleaning clothes, however she had no idea how I shot her, and she gladly continued about her chores whilst chatting with me.
Further down there is a shop called Mallia Bros, but also known as 'Ta' Marie Ros' (as far as my mother recalls), run by brothers Philip and Lino Mallia. I recall this shop since a young age, because I used to go to catholic lessons in the area, and that shop has always been there. Lino is also an actor and when I was there he helped this old gentleman go into a van that came to pick him up.
I also met Karmenu Attard, who spent quite a while recounting about the cotton industry in older Haz-Zebbug. He was totally helpful and so sweet.
In the other part of town close to Misrah Muxi, I came across this lady and her dog, and her husband in Triq Santa Marija. They were shy but still allowed me to take their photo.
