Who puts up the statues to Amerigo Vespucci? ;-)

He's not that popular in academic circles around here, tho. But if you have an Italian community with their marvelous food...lucky you! It's so interesting to me whom groups decide to honour.

I'm always surprised what you might find in and around Phoenix.

'CODEX 362' is a fantastic novel based on an amazing research made by a portuguese journalist, José Rodrigues dos Santos, about the european espionage involving Columbus journey. If you like the subject, the english version is available on Amazon and I tryuly recommend it.

Sorry, Sharon, its 632 (not 362)...

This is a statue you would never find in front of the Heard Museum or some other location associated with Native American cultures.

How unique is that! I wouldn't expect to see a statue like that around here. Have you tried that place?

I wonder if Christopher read about Leif Eriksson the Viking having discovered America many years earlier??
