Cafe Jubilee and my lost camera

Cafe Jubilee is both recommended by touristic guides as well as by locals. During my short visit of Malta it became my „home caffee“. I felt good among all the bric-a-brac that serves as decoration.

Eventhough there´s a dense bus network in Malta and one can find timetables, many times they turn out to be pointless.
