Map

A map is an ancient way of communicating information based upon landmarks that could be easily forgotten or confused. Maps are not always accurate but as long as it is functional this is almost a negligible observation. The reason why it is not negligible is due to the fact that discrepancies, exaggerations, and embellishments can often have very interesting stories of their own.
This map for example is not very comprehensive and has only a tokenistic amount of visual information. As such this is an esoteric map that requires additional information in order to make use of it.
The two key pieces of information required here are in identifying the context of the map and the key landmark significant in placing the reader of the map. In terms of context, this map is for people taking the St. Paul’s Bay bound bus from Valletta and it represents an area outside of Mosta. The key landmark is a church that is placed in between two roads of traffic. The small circle denotes the destination that the map maker wished map users to locate themselves to.
Note: This is part one of two.
Note : This is a map for finding flour, including brown flour, in Malta.
Note: Note that it is a difficult task to find good brown flour in Malta and brown bread is nigh-on non-existant.
Note: The destination is said to have its own functional mill that it uses to grind flour.
Note: Some supermarkets do not stock flour because the demand from the general public is not substantial enough.
Note: Maltese bread is ubiquitously white.
Note: Malta Mills have been documented as follows though I do not know if mine is one of these: http://www.windmillworld.com/europe/malta.htm
Note: The above notes.
