ABBA Concert appreciation letters
My old school friend, Pam, and I (now in our 60’s) are just back from an 8 day break in Malta, where we stayed at Pebbles in Sliema and were fully able to appreciate the Valletta skyline from our 6th floor apartment. It was Pam’s first visit but I had been many times before although not since the early 1970’s.
On our flight out, with Air Malta, I read about the Abba charity concert in aid of the skyline appeal and we were able to book tickets on line when we arrived.
After an afternoon in Mdina we got a taxi to Gianpula Village, arriving far too early for the concert but we set up camp on a box which we were subsequently able to stand on in order to enjoy the concert.
I just wanted you too know how warm and friendly everyone was and how much we appreciated being part of the event. We were made very welcome by the organisers, in their ponchos, who came over and chatted to us, we the only audience there for at least an hour, and gave us cocktails. We were embraced by everyone, locals as well as far travelled younger fans, in their amazing glittery Abba outfits, from Sweden. Our only disappointment was that we had booked a taxi to take us back to Sliema and the concert was still in full swing when it arrived at 10.30!
We had a truly memorable evening and I would like to thank everyone for their hard work and for making us feel so welcome. I hope you will be able to pass on our thanks to all those involved.
