The Cave of Hercules, mythological home of Hercules, is near the Straights of Gibraltar which he is said to have created. The opening above is looking from inside the cave out to the Atlantic Ocean. The opening is famous in its own right for looking like a map of Africa. I can see the resemblance, but it does require a bit of imagination to find it.
I forget the details, but if I remember correctly, this large sign in the shape of a bull is an advertisement for a beer.
We stopped here for a photo op. While everyone else remained focused on the sign, I was distracted by the sheep being herded right beside a busy, four-lane, divided highway.
But that’s just me. Critters win my attention every time.
I was fortunate enough to spend the past week in Singapore. My first visit, and I found it a wonderful city. Very diverse, very cosmopolitan, easily walkable. I’ll have more photos and blog posts to share, but for now, the Merlion will stand in welcome to the blog as he does to the city itself and the marina basin.
I’ve only been back a day or so, and therefore still on Singapore time and schedule. It may be a bit before I get round to everyone’s blog posts and to answer comments. I tried to keep up while I was away, but you know how that goes.
These donkeys wandered around the lighthouse. As soon as our bus came within sight, enterprising local children rounded them up for tourists to take pictures – and give an appropriate tip, of course.
