Looking at Africa from Frontier Point de Europe in Gibraltar and having the awesome wind in the face. Dresses on women flew off - what a day!

Does Gibraltar Rock! No, I don't think so!

 

I had no expectations when I went down here; I just wanted to visit it and to see the huge rock and having been close to Gibraltar a couple of times made me curious. What was going on there? On my way down there I was reflecting a bit; what did I know about this place? I knew some but in general not so much! Did I learn more after being there? Yes I learnt some, but I also looked in my book; the sight as such didn't give me so much.

It has been fun being here; no doubt, and I truly enjoyed the Frontier point of Europe and the wind in my face. Standing there finally recognizing that Africa was very close made a lasting impression on me.

I did not enjoy the traffic there, there were cars everywhere and not enough roads or space to have roads. There was also to much trouble to leave again; there was one long queue to get out, all the way from the city centre. It was ridiculous; if you go here visit by bike, scooter, motor bike or walking. The lasting memory of this place is that's its messy; I had expected something cleaner.
