14 euros for 6 postcards and a magnet. With stamps, of course.
Let me just say, this is the last time you will all be recieving postcards from Gibraltar. Please act grateful, and leave them on your fridges until I get home.
I thought about circling The Rock. I wasn’t sure if it was possible.
I sat on this beach for awhile.
I noticed the airstrip and the border right near me. I decided to take my bike and see how close I could get to the border.
If you’ve ever seen Gibraltar on a map, or from the Rock, you will see the border is right by a thin airstrip that you must cross to leave the country.
Too much fun!! I rode my bike across the air strip and then back again. I wasn’t sure if I had crossed into Spain, for there were no checkpoints. Perhaps the border is a little further on. At any rate, I didn’t want to be stuck in Spain with no passport.
Well that was exciting, and my adrenalin was pumping.
I came across a rather ordinary bakery. And bought and ate (half) a cake. It was almost a normal piece of cake, with almost normal frosting which you never see on the ship.
And that’s about it for my boring day in Gibraltar! But how ’bout I show you some pictures from last time in Gibraltar
(flashback, dream sequence music)
The Rock is absolutley infested with wild apes, the only wild apes (aside from soccer fans) living in Europe.
Then, the most amazing thing happened. The apes attacked Daniel! He had a huge plastic bag full of duty-free and they ganged up on him for the duty-free. They just encircled him, as if they were being friendly, and then attacked him.
If you’ve ever watched your significant other be attacked by apes, well… I wasn’t laughing then, but I did savour the memory of it for later.
I watched a particularily big ape pick my newly-purchased memory card out of the bag. He ran to the cliff edge and held it in his hand, chewing on the plastic. Yes, it was just me versus the monkey. I reached into my bag and produced a nice juicy apple, slowly, so as not to scare him off down the cliff. Luckily he forgot about the plastic he was holding and I managed to snatch it from him while he took the apple. Phew!
The Lesson: Watch out for the wild Apes!!
