Every time a cruise liner sails in or out of the Grand Harbour, a solitary figure appears perched high upon a roof ledge cheerily waving a Maltese flag to welcome or bid the passengers farewell.
“I feel as if I’m contributing to my home country in my own little way,” said the 70 year old citizen.
Charles Cremona knows the timetable of the liners’ activity and appears on the roof of his apartment like clockwork.
This amiable practice started two years ago when a close friend of Mr Cremona’s was about to leave Malta for a holiday on board a cruise liner.
