Taking the ferry from Valletta to Birgu (3 Cities), I saw this boatman chugging along in his traditional Maltese boat/water taxi (also known as “dgħajsa”) past these super yachts in the harbor of Birgu.

A traditional boat chugs past these fancy yachts in the port of Birgu – in the background you can see the city of Valletta (Dec 2018)

At the first glance, you’d probably wish to be the owner of the yacht than be the guy in the boat. Till a Google search throws up the history of the yacht – formerly called the Indian Empress, it belonged to an ex-politician and now bankrupt tycoon… And just to be clear – I was not aware of this when I took the picture…

And now? Who would you rather be? There is no right or wrong answer.. 🙂
