Gibraltar - a daytrip from Malaga

View across the Runway Photo, Malaga, Spain

We headed west one day to Gibraltar. The drive along the coast is wonderful, but keep your eyes on the winding road. The rock is a bit of England right in Spain. On a clear day you can see Africa, however this day was misty and we could just barely make out the coast. As you get close, it just pops out at you going around a bend in the road. Going though the city, pay close attention to the road signs because it is easy to get caught in a maze of one way streets that seem to get narrower the more you keep going. Eventually we came out of it ok and found the long waiting line to cross through customs. To get to the rock, you actually pass over an airport strip. It's the first time we saw an "airplane crossing" barrier. We hit the south end first to get our view of Africa, the lighthouse, and the mosque. Then we drove up and discovered the apes. No, not behind bars or isolated by troughs and walls. These guys were up close and personal. Truly a highlight of the trip.
