I’m in the middle of reading a book, A Voyage Long and Strange, by Tony Horwitz, and basically it’s a book about early explorers of North America up to the time of the Pilgrims. Now, the author doesn’t tell you about them, he actually went to the places; such as Newfoundland to the remains of a Viking Settlement, the Dominican Republic to see the places Columbus went, etc.
So this morning I read about Columbus in the Dominican Republic and Haiti (Hispaniola), which is where the Santa Maria sank, and a few hours later on my RSS feed from the BBC online news site…apparently the remains of the Santa Maria have been found on a reef off the coast of Haiti!
Cue twilight zone music…doo doo doo doo…
Really, what’s the odds?
