Down this same river sailed the great sailors, like Vasco da Gama, on (heir historic pioneer- ing voyages many centuries ago. Although I was not able to tarry long in Lisbon, I found that I was able to see a great deal. Within an liour of the cap- ital are several places well worth a visit on the coast is the famous Estoril, with Its shining white beaches and Its casino, and nearby is the charming port of Cascais. My favorite epot, however, which I found soo nafter arriv- ing on a direct British Euro- pean Airways Trident flight from London, was the ancient village of Sintra, less than 20 miles from Lisbon. Set in a lovely lush valley it is famous for its palaces Ihe nalional Palace of Sintra in the town it- self and the delightful Pcna Pal ace perched precariously, it seems, on a pinnacle high above. T am not an enthusiastic ex- plorer of castles, but the Pena Palace fascinated me. To reach it one travels up a cool, narrow twisting road through tropical- like vegetation. In IVt miles one actually climbs Borne- Icet. The palace itself is coo: and inviting, and a stroll through narrow corridors leads mooo. SWEEPSTAKES WEEK'S MR. M.

The fado Is not their nations song, but it is to them what th flamenco is to Spain. Some of is very sad, particularly down in the old town.

Pub crawling is best bet LONDON (CP) The over- ens tourist, who is a dedicated eer drinker, will find himself dazzling confusion in Britain ith different brands of ritish beer to choose from. He can sample some of them j licensed restaurants, in night- ubs and drinking clubs, or buy otties and cans lo take away, ut the recommended place to rink heer is in the public ouses or pubs. And with nearly spread around the coun- yt all he needs is the time. pub crawl through the more teresting districts of London ill lake the visitor from mod- pubs put up only yesterday 3 those hundreds of years old; om fashionable arty pubs in helsea and Hamp.stead to East nd pubs where old ladies can ill be persuaded to sing and ance. He will find a tied house has ic brewer name over the oor and stocks mainly the ompany's beers, while a free ouse stocks a variety of makes, according to the land- ord's choice. EE BAR 1UTUAL Starting off, perhaps, at a Bass Charrington House soon fter 11 in the morning, when most pubs open, the tourist may isk for a Bass, which was origi- nally brewed in J777, principally or the export trade. Blue Bass s bottled without the sediment, iut if he wants to watch the rit- ual of the barmaid holding his le up to the light and pour- ng it with steady hand to ex- clude the sediment, then he ihould ask (or a Red Bass. Next it is time lo think about unch. Most pubs do some sort if catering, ranging from sim- ple snacks to full restaurant iervice. If the tourist only wants something light, his best bet is .he ploughman's cutter, a chunk of cheeese, and some pickled onions, served with a pint of bitter. may want cool off with a Draught bitter Is full fla- most districts at p.m. he vored beer of low carbonation and unique to Britain, keg is a modern type of draught bitter which has been chilled and fil- tered and usually pasteurised to ensure long shelf life, and is more highly carbonated and served cooler than traditional oitter. They are both national favorites and between them ac- count for about 20 per cent of total beer consumption. TRY STRONG BEEll About three o 'c I o c k the gov'nor as the licensee is called "Last orders, and the tourist might like to stoke up with a Stingo, a strong beer originally classified as a barley wine. When the pubs reopen, in Dulch lager, made Britain at a in Luton, where a Dutcii brewmasler is perma- nently in residence lo see stand- ards arc kept up.

Most of ttie major brewery companies report that their ex- ports account for only a propor- tion of their total" overseas sales. P'l nty more beer brewed by their subsidiary com- panies abroad, or under licence. At liome in Britain, bcer- drinking habits have been changing radically the tost few years. "A lafier explosion" Is Czech visa how one brewery has described the rising popularity of both the imported and home-brewed product. The proportion of lager drunk in 1939 was only two per cent of Britain's lotal beer con- sumption. By it had dou- bled to four per cent and Ihe sample survey for 1970 points to between five and six per cent. But the growth of keg beers is much more dramatic, shooting up to more than 20 per cent from onlv two per cent in I960. What has lost out then? The answer is mild beer, with a drop from 32 per cent in 1939 to only 22 per cent in the 1970 sam- ple survey.

India hopes for increase in tourists Although Canadian t o o r i s t traffic to India was reduced last December due to the India-Pakistan conflict, figures for the preceding month of No- vember show a marked in- crease over the corresponding period in 1970. Canadian traffic to India In November, 1971, was up by 45.2 per cent over November, 1970, according to K. N, Kudesia, Di- rector, Government of India Tourist Office, Toronto. There was an overall ur crease from January through November of 4.2 per cent over the same period in 1970. "The November increase of almost 50 per cent convinces me that Canadians will include India on their itinerary once again now that conditions are back to Mr. Kudesia said. "In fact, I feel we can realize a traffic increase this year. 1 have talked to several travel agents, and they feel optimistic about travel within the coun- try, and have no hesitation about fending clients to India."
