375 Day 117 - Can I cadge a lift?

I can't say I was over excited by the prospect of a visit to Gibraltar but that is where we are today. We walked the length of the Main Street without being tempted by the duty and tax free goods on offer, had a walk round the botanical gardens which are very nice, although some parts were closed, maybe because this is a public holiday,and of course a trip up the cable car to see the view and the monkeys. This had to be the cheekiest of all. Just as we were about to start our descent, he tapped my husband on the shoulder and asked for a lift back down.

Did you know . . .

. . . that there is no natural water on Gibraltar?

By that I mean that there are no springs, therefore no rivers or streams. No underground reservoirs, natural or otherwise and hence, no wells.
Every drop of water that's consumed there, for whatever reason, has to be imported or caught.
One side of the rock is covered by corrugated sheets of something, galvanised metal, I think, which catches and channels rainwater into a system of tanks and things to contain it.
Water is also brought in by ship but it's a horribly expensive way to deliver it as it can only be transported by oil tankers on their maiden voyages.
And I don't think that happens very often.
