Comentarios sobre Gibraltar

Gibraltar is a boil on the arse of humanity. The majority of those in positions of power -- the police -- are sleazy, corrupt arseholes. Want a hit? Ask a policeman ... he probably has his own supply. Rich Auntie Mable not dying quick enough? Take her to Gibraltar and bump her off ... the pathologist is as much use as a chocolate fire-guard or shag a copper and get away with it!
I can confirm that Gibraltar is a dump, having just spent the weekend there. They have overpriced hotels; poor restaurants; naff, British-style pubs -- worse still is the depressing array of tenement flats with washing hanging from most windows. It represents the very worst of the U.K. society and should be condemned, demolished, and given to the Spanish, who could make it respectable. I felt sorry for the monkeys having to put up with the dregs surrounding the rock.
Gibraltar is a great place if you like cheep cigarettes, booze, sunshine, and monkeys.
Gibraltar is very touristic and overpriced. But if you travel trough the south of Spain, it's a must to visit.
Gibraltar's main problem seems to be the British expats found in every bar and restaurant complaining that it's crap and not like England (they do the same in Spain) and the low life Spanish cigarette smugglers stuffing half-dismantled mopeds with cigarettes on every street corner. The locals are extremely friendly; depending on the time of year, weather can be quite warm and humid. Shopping is extremely cheap if you avoid the establishments aimed at lightening tourists' wallets. If you expect Spanish food (like tapas) in a British country, be prepared to pay for it. Historically, the place is amazing. To see all of the tourist attractions (many by appointment with a military guide) you need at least a week in the country. To really enjoy the place (and the beaches) several weeks and an open mind are recommended.
I keep going back to Gibraltar since I was sixteen (am now fifty-five). It has changed a lot and not all for the best, admittedly. As with anywhere else, though, you need to look at the history and culture of the place -- the locals are really terrific and multicultural. If you want a week on the beach with lots of booze and karaoke, go to Spain. A cheap hotel saves money for everything else you may want to do. I'd live in Gibraltar if I could.
