Early morning we left Malta and went on a trip to the sister island of Gozo.  Gozo is called the island of the three hills. There we visited museums, archeological sites and various places of interest.  We also went to the old Capital of Gozo, the Citadella.  At the Citadella, we visited the Cathedral and we also saw the crafts still used by the Gozitans like lace making and wool knitting.

On this day we attended the Lino Spiteri Foundation.  In this building we saw students with different special needs being taught different trades in order to enable them to be employed in various companies.  One of the jobs they were doing was assembling Lego figures.  They are trained to work diligently, be punctual and responsible.
