Trivia #016


Did you know...

... that today is Explorer Day? In 1492, on this day,
Christopher Columbus set sail from Palos, Spain hoping to find
a route to India. Instead, he found the Caribbean islands off
southeastern North America. Columbus thought he had made it to
Asia, and called this area the Indies, and called its
inhabitants Indians.
