Playing With the Monkeys in Gibraltar!

Want to hear about the most amazing 5 hours of my life?  It starts with a rickety caravan, makes its way to a giant cavernous amphitheater, and ends with a pack of monkeys jumping from tree to tree, over our vans, trying to open the car doors because they could smell our food.
