I had a great time on the old Devis, and Debrett. I agree about the good times in BA and Rio - and what about Recife (say no more) - Santos, and my favourite, Monte.tonyc3 said:Anyone remember the MV Devis?. She had a funny configuration with the wheel house set in the funnel. I was SOS on her in 1958. Good times in Rio and BA.

How about the Lighthouse Bar in Monte????????Santos said:Happy ships and happy days indeed.
I must say I enjoyed all the ports on the east coast of South America. There was a particularly good eating house in Port Allegre called the Taverno Gaucho ( thinks thats how you spelt it )
They served the best steaks in South America. Steaks on swords, steaks on daggers, I'm getting hungry just remembering them. Washed down with a good wine or if you prefered a rum and coke. Fantastic eating.
Then the fun ports of Santos, Receife, Bahia, even Rio if you got there for Carnival time.
There were the little timber ports of Itajai and San Fancisco Do Sul and Rio Grande Do Sul.
I would love to see them all again.
