Vox Pop: Il-Qassis Min Hu?

Posted by in Featured Post, Lectio Divina | 0 comments

Jekk ikollna nagħmlu vox pop ta’ malajr fit-toroq jew il-pjazez Maltin dwar il-mistoqsija: “il-qassis min hu?” jista’ jkun hemm min isemmi xi karattru li jidher fid-drama Maltija… karattru kemmxejn komiku jdur bir-rota, jiekol minn familja għal oħra.

This book was one of my childhood favourites, and I recently re -lived a particular scene from this timeless classic. C.S.
