We follow a track that goes up into Wied Hanzir and we follow the valley floor over countless small boulders until we come to an area where the rocks are smooth enough to sit and have our break. Eventually we go downhill towards Wied Qirda where we pass under the Qormi-Siggiewi road and find our transport near the ex-Peridot hall.
