Places we visited…..

BAHIA BLANCA

( Puerto Enginerio White)

The port in the distance

Another port frequented on some Bank Line voyages – usually to load grain, was Enginerio White, the quirky named port for the big city of Bahia Blanca, a short ride away. On a visit on the Eastbank, loading went on no more than 2 hours a day! (A few rail waggons would appear mid morning and tip in the grain, and that was it for the day). This gave us a month in port to exhaust our funds and enjoy the delights of the bars in the city.

See the book called, ” Voyaging with Icons” for accounts of life in the Bank Line travelling the world.
