Estaleiro do Ouro (Goa and the mini-Titanic, 1)
Mr. Alfama got his nickname 'Goa' in 1956 when he went to combat in the former Portuguese overseas territory of India with the same name.
His Army battalion was sent by vessel through the Suez Canal and got there late September that year. He particulary enjoyed the food, the women and the Basilica of Bom Jesus.
