THAT'S MY WORLD TUESDAY # 01

WELCOME TO MY WORLD!!!!
A WORLD WHERE MEMORY HAS NOT BEEN SCRAPPED, WHERE SHIPS ARE CHERISED AND STILL SAILING!
Photo posted yesterday at [SHIPS & THE SEA], with a dedication to ATLÂNTICO AZUL. Click on the image to better view it. It has a very interesting view over Lisbon on 4 July 1952, with four passenger liners of Companhia Colonial de Navegação in port: «PÁTRIA», «VERA CRUZ», «MOUZINHO» and, inside the dock, the beautiful «SERPA PINTO» ex «EBRO» of Royal Mail Line.
Today's post is my contribution to «[THAT'S MY WORLD TUESDAY]», a new Meme for everyone who has a photoblog! With it we may become virtual tourist guides, showing everyone our part of the world. Quoting the Team that created this Meme, «the world has become so small these days, and yet we know so little about each other. So why not change that? Because My World Tuesday is not about our differences, but about what all of us have in common. And we're sure that is way more, than that, what makes us different». Isn't this great??? «That's my World» is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Wren, Fishing Guy & Tom !!!
And so I tell you... WELCOME TO MY WORLD! A WORLD WHERE WE LOVE SHIPS AND THE SEA, WHERE WE BATTLE FOR TRUTH, FOR JUSTICE, FOR EQUAL RIGHTS AND BETTER CONDITIONS FOR EVERYBODY!!! Unfortunatelly, this World of Mine is still on my mind.

Love the shot of old Lisbon, such a beautiful city I visited last month. I actually went to Cascais, but had some time in Lisbon as well.
Loved your final sentence, muito bonita.
Greetings from sunny Spain!

I love long sea voyagess, beautiful old photo with the four ships. so much nicer to be on them than the grand 'big city' ships like the Queen Mary etc.
I share your concern for the world.

I love your world, and the world in your mind. We had a tall ship in the harbour this week, you would have loved it.
