have no idea what Kings view is?Quote: Doc
Sounds as if your experience in Ponta Delgada was quite similar to mine. I posted my recollections in the Casino Chip of the Day thread almost a year ago after our cruise ship stopped in this port. Did you make it up to King's View (described in a bogus chip-of-the-day post about Monte Palace shortly before the one linked)?
