From the ship we were going to take the shuttle to town, but we had an offer we couldn't refuse - a tour guide with the highlights of Gibraltar. We started out going past some government buildings and Clive, our guide, pointed out various churches and mentioned that there are 4 synagogues on Gibraltar! We passed one on the way to a vista that happens to be near the Jewish cemetery- and jail. But the interesting picture to me was the farthest south point of Gibraltar and in the background you see Africa - and the distance is 14 miles. While geography was never my strong suit, this is surprising to me, especially since Spain's border was even closer.. We went on up the Rock to St Michaels Cave and it was quite a surprise - it was much drier than Carlsbad Caverns. One picture is with Joey and no "light" show. The other is after the lights were turned on. Then we went on to an area that has the famous monkey of Gibraltar- I took so many pictures - I chose 3 for today's blog.. We then went to the top of the Rock where we saw wonderful vistas, but most interesting was the airports runway where they have to stop traffic on the road when a plane takes off .. Funnily enough when we were talking with one of the couples on this trip, it turned out that the husband went to the University of Florida same time as me, and the wife's grandma lived in Grass Valley CA. So odd! After dinner on the ship we attended a flamenco performance. And it was different than I expected - no castanets- and only the male had taps on his shoes. The women had shawls or scarves and we were told the sound of the rhythmic clapping was different from city to city. Lovely day. On to the next.
