Partying with rock stars. It’s just how we roll.

Day 110 10.08.12 Gibraltar

Mum and baby barbary macaques in GibraltarBarbary macaque in GibraltarWe woke up to discover that we weren’t the only people enjoying the beach side location last night, it seems the mosquitos were too.  It’s horrible to wake up and spot a few mosquitos full of blood!  Then the waiting game begins to see which one of us got bitten (usually Ali).

It’s pretty late when we wake up and so it becomes a relatively lazy day.  We have a trip to the supermarket, wander into town for wifi on the phones and have a short walk on the beach.  We make the most of the beach facilities too for getting showered and Chris having a shave session (of head and face!).

Again I didn’t take any pictures today so here’s some more monkeys!
