An ancient replica sailing ship from the 16th century, from Sweden, plying the lucrative sailing and trading routes to Asia, reviving the history.
This ship was manned by volunteers and they had been sailing around the world for a while, promoting exchange of knowledge between countries and fostering world peace and friendship at the ports of visit. They came just in time to Singapore wishing us Happy New Year 2007 !
I went down to Vivo City whereby the ship Gotheborg is berthed, and I also took the opportunities to look at Vivo City for the first time since it opened. There were displays on the history of Gotheborg and information on the country Sweden. There were many people taking photos of Gotheborg from different deck levels of Vivo City and around the berth area too. I was happily snapping photos away in the midst of the rain. There was on 1st January 2007, when I also took the evening photos around Harbourfront area in my earlier posting.
