Is that Malta? Well composed shot with local architecture and local craft. Oriana's not bad either!! Wonder whether they tipped the boatmen?

I was actually on board when this photo was taken!! (Hope they did'nt destroy the substantial collection of memorabilia that was on board there in China) here's hoping its been put in a museum.Any thoughts or knowledge on those items? (which included lots of everyday working aspects of the last great Orient liner)
