I came for my second part of my traineeship to the META. The ship has just been taken over from STUK and i boarded at Rotterdam, from where we took off to Lisbon for some weeks docking and repair.
I remember it was somewhere in April '75 as the Portugese revolution started when we were there. with tanks in the streets. I know my parents were afraid something would happen to me, but I was safe in the Texas bar where the girls took care of mee ;)
