    Does any body know that where the name "GIBRALTAR" has come from? it has come from an Arabic word " Jabal At Tariq" which means the mountain of Tariq. Tariq was a Muslim army commander who conquered this mountain in 7th century.

    I am single black guy. I am thinking about visiting Gibraltar on the way to/from Spain. I want to go but I don't want to have any "trouble" from the locals. Do you think I would enjoy it there?
