About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Gibraltar


Meanwhile, back to the last trip. From Granada Mark and I made a mad early morning dash to the city of Algeciras, Spain to catch the ferry across the Strait of Gibraltar to Tangier, Morocco.

Of course the Strait of Gibraltar is well known for that big rock. You know, the Prudential logo. Gibraltar is kind of an interesting place. Turns out it's a British Territory. Instead of Euros they use Pounds. You can drive all over the rock. Which we did.
From atop the rock we could see Africa.

So to Africa we went...
