Amerigo Vespucchi

As mentioned earlier, I got a chance to see a beautiful ship Amerigo Vespucci docked in Limassol port last weekend.  I’ve taken a few pictures, which, unfortunately, don’t do the ship any justice.  The real thing is quite something.

Update: I’ve also uploaded these pictures to Flickr.
