Photo by Brian McMorrow (downloaded from [HERE]) of the Tomb of [Vasco da Gama] at the Monastery of Jeronimos (Belém, Lisbon). Vasco da Gama was one of the greatest Portuguese explorers, and one of the most successful in the World since the Age of the Discoveries. He was also the commander of the first ships to sail directly from Europe to India. Please check the label «Vasco da Gama» to view more posts about this great heroe.
«V» is also for «VASCO DA GAMA», former «INFANTE DOM HENRIQUE», the first ship I cruised on, back in 1972. A contribution to ABC Wednesday.
