Gibraltar revisited

So many sights and sounds to experience! A plane took off below, roaring as it banked over the sea and disappeared up into the sky. And then I saw one of the Barbary Macaques which live semi-wild here. It is forbidden for the public to feed them, but food is provided for them and they receive veterinary care.

I spent some time wandering around the observation decks taking photographs of the monkeys and the spectacular views before returning to street level, where I walked back towards the frontier via Main Street.

I didn’t see much evidence of change or redevelopment in Gibraltar since 1965. It’s all a bit run-down. Main Street is fillled with souvenir shops selling tat, and others offering cameras, binoculars and jewellery at unattractive prices. All accept the euro, but the post office takes only the official pounds sterling.
