Gibraltar

25 Oct

When I was told about Gibraltar, it didn’t seem like something real, like  a place such as this existed somewhere in the world. I had to go and see it for myself, and luckily, a few people went with me to wonder at it.

I magine for a second that one day, Rhode Island decided that it didn’t want to be a part of the United States of America anymore. That they were sick of it and wanted to become their own separate body and country, with a flag and everything. This is similar to Gibraltar; officially owned, run, and governed by England and the British Police, the whole place comes complete with usage of pounds, British food, British guards, and even road signs in English.

It was like walking into a different world, even though Spanish soil was a few feet away. A quick flash of the passport and we were in, eating fish and chips and playing with monkeys.

That’s right, monkeys… the place hosts a big mountain that’s inhabited by monkeys that run free on the trails. The most adorable little things, they are use to humans and are never afraid of putting on a show.

Sitting on a bench, eating a sandwich I was sharing with one of the monkeys, I thought about the peaceful set up they had here and wondered where else I have encountered such a thing. I shrugged and stared at the sunset with them and just enjoyed the moment while i still could. They’ll easily forget me, the man with the loaves of bread with meat in it; but i won’t soon forget them.
