Malta after Dusk

Here are a few paragraphs from night tour article

Malta is a sunny island in the Mediterranean, just between Africa and Sicily.  When the beautiful golden beaches empty, stone palaces close up and the throng of tourists head back to their hotels, the island lights up. The stillness of the night turns the island into a glimmering, even exciting place.

In Mdina, once the capital city of Malta, the narrow streets and passages fade into the darkness as I stare toward the fortifications.  The illuminated St. Pauls Cathedral almost floats in the middle of Cathedral. The silent city is ghostly at night, I was relieved to be on a guided tour.

Our last stop of the night, Mosta Cathedral, was where the miracle of Mosta took place.  In the evening the religious statues that stare down from the building facade seem larger, their facial expressions more severe and more determined to save the world.
