Around Father’s day, we had gone for walks, to Kariya Park area, and remembered previous walks-over yesteryears-with Father Figures of the community in Malta-2012, where we had even gone to the Cemetery at Floriana and paid respects to seniors of times gone by.
The first ever walking club I remember was of the Pune of the 1970s when we would go for early morning walks – See blog-
