Meeting the Barbary macaques in Gibraltar

The rock of Gibraltar is home to a very friendly type of monkey, the Barbary macaque. I was part of a KSTP-TV camera team that met these apes.

I traveled with Twin Cities Live co-host Steve Patterson, photographer Seth, Steve’s wife, Lu, and 40 Twin Cities Live viewers on a 11-night Mediterranean cruise. It truly was the trip of a lifetime. One highlight was meeting the Barbary macaques in the British territory of Gibraltar. They get real friendly.
