The next day we drove to the Rock of Gibraltar.  With the whole situation of losing Dad, I was not at my best and I forgot that this sticking rock is under British control and I forgot our passports in the safe back at the Marriott.  I am a seasoned traveler and felt like a knob but I tried to cajole the British officer with our driver’s licences etc at the passport control but he was having none of it.  Seriously we have the same Queen what is the big deal really?  Not to mention he was a complete asshole in the bargain.  You can probably guess that we did not get onto the Rock of Gibraltar but we saw it and took some pictures.  The Kollers got onto the rock and had a good time so we lived vicariously through them that night as they told us tales of monkeys crawling all over their vehicle and steep narrow roads etc.
