Church of St John the Baptist, Gozo, March 2019

Ix-Xewkija, one of the oldest villages of Gozo, is home to the island’s largest church which proudly features the third largest unsupported dome in the world.

The dome of St John’s is visible in any view across the island, and I knew I had to climb to the top before I left. I hadn’t expected this open spiral staircase, which was waiting on top of the dome. Clambering up it isn’t too bad. Coming down is a different matter!

Thanks to everyone for your fashion statements last week. I think that between us we redefined the term fashion. Special thanks to David for both his words and his feathered fashion; to Sue for taking us back a few decades; and Jesh for bringing us edible fashion.
