Chris and I took a train from Seville, Spain to Malaga, which is a city on the beach in the south of Spain. In the morning we caught a bus which passed through the Costa del Sol. Really cute southern Spain beach towns along the coast, which led to La Linea, Spain. From there you can walk about 1 mile to Gibraltar. Gibraltar is a British colony on the very southern tip of Spain. You can see Africa from the rock on top! SO fascinating and lots of war history. It was once known as the end of the earth - until Christopher Columbus sailed past it and discovered America. And the rock was formed by the moving of tectonic plates. And so on.
One of the coolest parts of Gibraltar that makes it even more exotic is the population of Barbary macaque apes. These apes live on the rock in the wild and are fed daily by the people of Gibraltar.
