We took a strenuous walk along the top of British Gibraltar this morning, and then down into some caverns and back up to the tunnels that were built to repulse the Spanish and French in the late 1800’s.
This piece of rock has been fought over numerous times and Britain and Spain still have bad feelings about it. My advice is to get over it. It is 2011.
The road connecting British and Spanish Gibraltar was reopened in 1985. It is one of only two roads in the world that bisect an active runway. They close the road so airliners can land and take off. Interesting to watch.
The Barbary Apes in Gibraltar are a big deal. They are not to be trifled with and their only fear is snakes. So our guide had some rubber snakes, which she waved at them and they behaved.
We head for Cadiz, Spain and a day in Seville on Sunday. I noticed that a bunch of my blogs from earlier in the week disappeared. I don’t know why.
