Today I have a Gibraltar-sized hole in my heart. It’s a small hole because Gibraltar makes up only 2.6 square miles, but it is known as one of the Pillars of Hercules so that fact alone makes it cool. The primary language is English because Gibraltar is a British territory; however, there are a lot of Spanish speaking individuals because the territory is connected to Spain. The monkeys you see below are barbary macaques and are one of the main attractions–they were very friendly.
Last week I spoke to about sixty sixth graders at Maryetta Elementary School about my trip to South America during my Semester at Sea adventure! In this picture I was telling the kids a story about when my friends and I stayed in a riverboat on the Amazon River. We had caught a crocodile on a late night outing and our guide brought it back for us to play with. They were a great group of kids. We had fun!
