A post from Emma - A Newsletter from QSI Malta
Mosta, this is a place in Malta:
My name is Emma Casagrande, I live in Malta, I come from Argentina but my passport says I am Brazilian. I am nine years old. I use to live in Buenos Aires, Argentina, That is the capital city. Then I moved to Dili, East Timor. Timor Leste that is next to Indonesia and close to Australia also. We moved there because my mom found work there. Now I am in Malta. I came to Malta on June, vacation, 2013. My mom found work in Libya but we are in Malta because it is very close to Libya. My family members are my mom, Albertina, my dad, Silvio and my sister Eloisa.

In the world there are magnificent free standing temples, but the temples in Malta are the oldest free standing temples in the world. Every temple in Malta where found by accident.

The Hypogeum is a temple under the ground. It is in Malta and we discovered many new things with it. The Sleeping Lady was found in the hypogeum was found in a pit.

There are also lots of very interesting rooms in the hypogeum like there was this room where there are stairs that stop and under it is a deep pit. Scientists think it was to trap robbers. Then there is a room entering the temple that scientist think they threw bones in there. The best room in the Hypogeum was the “ Holy of Holies”.
