The New World

Happy Columbus Day to all those commemorating a Genoan who never actually set foot in North America, or South America for that matter, but who kindly paved the way for the Spanish, Portuguese, English, French and Dutch who did by stumbling upon the Bahamas.

"The Seven Cities of Cibola? Where? Is it Quivira? El Dorado? Shangri-La? The Fountain of Youth? Where, man, where? Whatever it is, tell them it's ours."
