Gibraltar is a curiosity within Europe: a piece of Britain on the Spanish coast. It has long been a bone of contention between the two countries. The Rock of Gibraltar is so small that the only road into the exclave crosses the airport’s runway. Otto was also stopped at the traffic lights, which turn to red if an aircraft is approaching.
