Sette Giugno (Italian for "Seven June") June 7 is a Maltese holiday which commemorates events that occurred on that day in 1919. Following a series of riots by the Maltese population, British troops fired into the crowd and killed four people. The holiday is in remembrance of this uprising against profiteering merchants and the British colonial government and is seen as the first step towards Maltese independence.
As we were finishing breakfast, we looked out at the harbour to see a sailboat race underway. It was very windy with large sea swells and several times there seemed to be close calls before the boats got themselves pointed in the right direction and headed out to open water.
We decided to find the National Museum of Fine Arts so we strolled to the southwest part of
