    city view

    by Tenzin Written Feb 25, 2003

    Favorite thing: Climb the Rock to view the magnificent draft created against the sea when the Boeings take off. At the airport tarmac itself we have the interesting experience of walking across the runway when the green man lights up. It gives a new dimension to the term 'Give way to pedestrian'.

    Fondest memory: Visit the museum at the Rock. Learn how the British defended this tiny crop of land against the Spanish. Expect the standard British flair of telling a good story while getting an education. Naturally it won't do without some chest thumping. Just try the Imperial War Museum in London, I couldn't find a single episode of British defeat in any war. In fact I saw a captured Japanese WWII flag displayed although they lost Singapore to the Japanese.

    Favorite thing: Go up the rock to see the famous monkeys and enjoy the views, most people only spend a day in Gibraltar and that's what they everyone does although the fare in the taxi is quite expensive compared to the cable cars which are more fun anyway and you can do things in your own time.

    Fondest memory: Standing on top of the rock looking out to sea with a warm breeze blowing in my face and the misty coastline of Northern Africa in the background (it looked so enticing that I ended up making a trip to Morocco) and in the tree next to me a family of mischevious Barbary apes.

    Favorite thing: ...y en el fondo la costa de Africa...
    get yourself a bottle of wine (best if you smuggeled it in from Spain), a nice person and settle for an evening staring across the Street of Gibraltar to the coast of Africa. Indulge in discussions about Morocco, Hercule and the stars above.

    Fondest memory: see above

    Favorite thing: Go up to the top of the rock on the cable car. the veiws are great and the restaurant up there is a good place to chil out after a long hot day.

    Fondest memory: Being ex Navy my memories are vague due to the consumption of the booze in the many bars that bordered the main street. but the beaches were great and the local girls were enough to turn your eyes,

    Seeing Africa

    You can see Africa across the strait

    Favorite thing: Views from the top of Gibraltar rock are stunning. You can see the Moroccan coast across the strait and you feel really tempted to make a short hop to Africa. It can be very windy up on the Rock.

    Fondest memory: If you stand at the TOP of THE Rock (I've decided to capitalize certain words for emphasis)... this is the view that you'll get to see!
