il Verde: I love this book. I am reading about Christopher Columbus. He sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to look for India.
Julia: How interesting, if you imagine that he didn't even have a map to follow longitude and latitude.
il Verde: Yes and instead of reaching India, he discovered South America.
Julia: So did he explore the Southern hemisphere?
il Verde: Indeed, he actually touched the shores of Haiti, Cuba and many small islands.
Julia: What an exciting life, navigating through oceans around the globe!
