Monkeys at Gibralter

The Apes on the rock were sooo funny. The most amazing thing to me was that there were no cages - no bars keeping you from the monkeys. If a monkey happened to need a stooping, camera-using tourist’s back as a stepping stone across a path, the ape would do so. We had laugh after laugh at their tourist scaring, food eating, lice picking antics.

Prices at the shops were outrageously high, running almost double what we have met elsewhere in southern europe. In the gift stores on the rock a t-shirt sells for $26, a book on the Great Siege for $45, and a magizine for $9. Eeep!
