"Rock of the apes." Gibraltar by cachaseiro

And a few remaining brits.

Gibraltar is bit of an odd place where one can still see the big devides there once was between the european countries.
Today it´s mainly known for being the only place in Europe that has wild monkeys and for the rock that devides two oceans (the atlantic and the mediteranian).
It´s a nice and interesting place to go for a daytrip if you are in southern Spain.

    Gibraltar was yes, an odd place to visit, historically important, but ...
    i have to say i was most amused one moment talking to the bobbies in english and then hearing them switch over to spanish so effortlessly, especially with their thick british accents

    this page brings back great memories of the "monkey-business" there - the problem of feeding the apes existed already 20 years ago and people simply cannot resist to do so...
