Replica East India Trader Reaches Shanghai
The Götheborg, a reproduction of an 18th century Swedish sailing ship, has reached Shanghai in China.
An exact copy of an East Indian trading vessel, the Götheborg left the west coast Swedish city Gothenburg last October, with stops along the way in Brazil, South Africa, Australia, and Indonesia.
Onboard for the final stretch were Crown Princess Victoria and her younger brother Prince Phillip. After a lay-over for several weeks of activities promoting Sweden, and an overhaul, the Götheborg will continue to Hong Kong in December.
