School trip to Gibraltar

Next week we are going to Gibraltar on a school trip. You know that you will have to work in groups and do a special Gymkhana during the visit. It will be really funny and it will give you the opportunity to be in direct contact with British people. You are encouraged to speak English with them and ask questions to complete your task.

Some questions are very easy but some others involve a deeper knowledge on Gibraltar. For this reason, you may want to have some information prior to the trip. I provide a series of links for you to start investigating:

Government of Gibraltar
Gibraltar: Wikipedia
Gibraltar: Tourism

Finally, when I was looking for a nice picture to show you Gibraltar's monkeys, I found something that made me feel really sad and terrified. It is a piece of news that announces that there has been and there is going to be a monkeys' cull (slaughter). They say that two of them have already been given lethal injections and vets have been ordered to kill another 23. The reason can be that some of these monkeys have vandalised hotel rooms and have run amok on a beach. (Click here and here for the news).

I am an animal lover and I consider that killing should be the last measure to take. These monkeys can be taken to a diffent place, a zoo for example, if they do not fit in The Rock anymore. I hope there is a better solution for this problem.
Look at these pictures, aren't they cute?

Hi Gonzalo! Of course I remember about our trip to Gibraltar, I wanted you to come with us, but sadly, it is impossible.

But I have a proposal to make you. On April 14th, we are going to Carmona and Italica with Lourdes's pupils from 4º ESO and we are going to meet Remes!!! Can you join us? It is Tuesday, do you work in the morning or in the afternoon? Anyway, we are going to be there the whole day, so you can join us whenever you can!!! What do you think? Is it possible? It would be fantastic!!!

See you, my dear Gonzalo!

Another proposal: Can you come this Friday to have lunch with us in Paterna?
