Malta roofs

In Malta, houses and buidings have flat roofs. People gain access to the roof by a stairway or a ladder.
I can already hear you thinking: “How lucky these Maltese people. They can enjoy the sun lying on a deck chair on their roof terrace.” Well, not in the least. Maltese roofs are functional. People hang out the washing on the roof. There can also be a water tank, a TV antenna or a satellite dish, a solar water heater and even sometimes solar panels there.

It’s really picturesque to go up onto the roof and to look at all that stuff on the surrounding roofs.
