Here Brooke exits the cable car while the monkey named 'Pepsi' looked on!Can you spot the monkey in the photo below, overlooking Gibraltar?
The weather was so strange. The clouds were forced up and over the rock, causing a very strange cloud formation that looked like a chimney pumping smoke. We were wary and cautious of the monkeys/apes, leaving them to be handled by the keepers who were all around. I guess they hold them at bay with treats of dried pasta. Yuck. But whatever works.
My little monkey had fun!Click here to see full album photos of our time in Gibraltar
This sign is funny to me. The Spanish and the British clash over this patch of land - even still. When driving to Gibraltar there was not a sign or a marker identifying it (thank goodness for GPS). The Spanish are passive aggressive and cease to think of Gibraltar as even existing and therefore don't mark it. But in Gibraltar as we drove through immigration (too funny!) they had at least this handy "To Spain" sign.We nearly freaked out when we realized the "causeway" we were on doubled as a part of the runway too!!! Are you kidding me?!? I tried to snag this photo to show - us crossing perpendicular to the runway.We overnighted in nearby Algiciras and readied for our next stop - Morocco (stay tuned!) The town isn't too much to write home about, but our hotel was incredible - AC Algiciras. Since it was Sunday and nothing else was open, we went to McDonalds for dinner. I loved these shots of Brooke and Kirk with their McDonalds gazpacho and beer!!! Definitely won't see that in America!
