Gibraltar is the north of the two pillars of Hercules, the south being in Morocco. These “gates of Gades” are the farthermost limits reached by Hercules. They bore the Latin name “non plus ultra” which meant roughly that nothing was beyond this point. It signifies the end of the old world and the start of today’s, where Momo stoically stares towards Spain while standing in the UK, with Africa (the south pillar) on the horizon behind him. At least that’s how I understood one of he mythologies but I might be wrong but go tell your friends anyways and we can start a new mythology together.
Looking out from a cave inside Gibraltar rock, this planet is unpredictable. On Spain’s southern coast, a tiny territory of the UK is the gateway between two continents where the Atlantic meets the Mediterranean. As if that wasn’t enough, apes live on this 426 meter limestone rock. This place is unreal. Swipe for a 🐵 Hats off to Pat and Chris for inviting us here and showing us around.
Losing sleep and swallowing shadows in Sevilla. - I’m thinking of going to Gibraltar tomorrow, a country that I didn’t know was real until yesterday! There are monkeys there and it’s the closest point to Africa that I’ll likely ever go with Momo (but, who knows).

Architect Ricardo Bofill drew influence for this building from North African casbahs. I still can’t get over this place. (Thanks @helananas 💛)
