Now that's a good question, but I can't answer it.

Hasta entonces el Peñón era un islote, que llegó a tener más de 500 habitantes frente al medio centenar de ahora. Ellos están en la piedra y nosotros en la tierra. No nos hacemos daño explica Mohamed Ahamad, un pescador de setenta y ocho años ya retirado. Una cuerda azul que sale desde la orilla hace las veces de sorprendente frontera entre Marruecos y España. Me pongo a caminar para comprobar qué ocurre. Inmediatamente el militar de guardia me da el alto y me manda retroceder.No está bien que nos hayas hecho fotos me dice. Las he hecho detrás de la cuerda azul, desde Marruecos le contesto.

The man with the boat doesn't seem to care much about having crossed the Spanish border (neither the near girl)

Reminds me of the Spanish Guarda Civil crossing into Gibraltar (British) waters the whole time. British police and navy spend a lot of time chasing them away. There has even been a collision once between British and Spanish police boats in the heat of the argument.

It is a long time I don't hear news about that fact, indeed, but it is really that for a while they had several problems.

Maybe the most curious was when a Spanish police ship was going after some drug smugglers and, they didn't notice but they arrived to the centre of Gibraltar port (this is not inside the waters but in the whole centre of the port because they were too fast).

British police arrested both to smugglers and to Spanish policemen and inquired about what had happened.

I remember that policemen called their boss to apologize but their words are not easy to translate. Just... they said they didn't notice.


but in fact, it is a long time I do not hear anything about that topic. As I usually say, we will receive several news 6 months to 1 year after any new government in Gibraltar or Spain and maybe a long time with no news.

The next picture is only a cycle path, I thought it is still a nice "boder crossing" - green "Schengen" border between Emmen, Netherlands and Haren, Germany. The road (fietspad) is called Smokkelpad, Dutch for "smugglers path" ;-)
Photo is taken from the Netherlands -> Germany

If that font is Arial (99% sure it is)... I will some day dig it up and install a similar, but better version using Helvetica.
