Mexican Training Ship Cuauhtemoc in the Black Sea

Cuauhtemoc in Istanbul

This week Istanbul had a distinct visitor from Mexico: The training ship ARM Cuauhtemoc. She arrived in Istanbul on 23 July and stayed till 27 July.  Currently she is sailing in the Black Sea and next port of call is Odessa.

The ship was build in Spain in 1982 and has three sisters: Colombia’s Gloria, Ecuador’s Guayas and Venezuela’s Simón Bolívar.

I was not able to take photos of Cuauhtemoc when she was in Istanbul but I hope I can see her when she returns from Odessa.
