Stopping off in Gibraltar!

Hi Everyone in Ash Class,

We arrived in Gibraltar yesterday morning and after lunch went on a visit to Europa Point and St Michael's Cave which is a natural carven with stalagmites and stalactites and they
sometimes hold concerts there because the sound is so good.

We also met the apes, there are five colonies of apes living on the rock and they are all called after members of the royal family or important people.  Gibraltar belongs to Britain and history has it that as long as the apes remain on the rock it will remain British, so the people of Gibraltar look after the apes very well indeed!   One of the ladies bought an ice cream and as she walked out of the shop an ape landed on her shoulder and made off with the ice cream.

When we were in Gibraltar we could see North Africa.  Do any of you know what the Twin Pillars of Hercules are?  Another question how wide and how long are the Straits of Gibraltar?
