Fondest memory: Some years ago when the Scandinavian seamens were in majority, they had their stronghold in Santos. Nobody drank as much beers and made as much noise as they did. They were the toughest men in South-America. At least they wanted all to believe it. The "Bar Erik" in Rua Alexandre Martins was the place.
The "Viking association of South America" is actually a joke. But the association kept all the seamens together. As a teenager on my first backbacker trip to Brazil I thought this was funny, and I was approved as a member (see photo). Even today people remember all the seamen in this street. Some of the seamen are now expats living in Santos with Brazilian wifes and children.

Fondest memory: Santos, with its twin city Sao Vicente, is one of the oldest cities in South America. It was founded in 1546. Santos is located in the state of São Paulo, 70 km from the city São Paulo City. Santos is a coastal city with more than 500,000 inhabitants and it is the main port in Brazil. Nearly half of the country's exports pass through Santos, with coffee as the most important product.
Colonial-style buildings dominate the centre of Santos. The beach are famous for its long beach-garden. A four-lane boulevard separates the beach from high residential buildings.
