It looks a bit like one of the old berths in Cape Town circa 1997/8 possibly!

Too many ports to remember on too many ships and too many 'little grey cells' vanishing with time! Yes Salvador De Bahia, checked on Google Earth and the yellow cranes are still there. I've been there but no idea which ship or when.

Interesting port, went several times on different ships. The city itself sits on a plateau above the port and could be accessed via several Funicular railways. Reminded me of the Lynton and Lynmouth railway back in dear old Devon! :D

We called there on board QM2 and QV….interesting port and probably good for less expensive bunkers!
