My Hive

Houses in Malta almost always have names to go along with (or sometimes, a little frustratingly, instead of) their street address. The best one we’ve seen yet is the above “My Hive” house. No information to provide on why they went with that name – usually they’re a bit more… normal. In fact, we’ve been informed that when giving your address your place’s name is more important than its street number. We almost rented a place called “Marguerite”, but it was not to be, so we live in an apartment building called “Windwards”. Less romantical, perhaps. But less stolid than “Fred”, which I saw the other day.
