Magellan

I learn something everyday!!!Did you know that the Pirate Ferdinand Magellan from Portugal was selected by King Charles I of Spain to look for a westward route to the Maluku Islands (the “Spice Islands”) and took with him 5 vessels.Turns out this dude gets lost sails around the world and gets lights out in Los Ladrones, islands which is the Gulf of Chiriquí in Panama.I had learned that he had died under the Sultanate in the Philippines.This picture is of Magellan encountering us on this side.
