Great expectations for some ... just another day for others
Whatever your plans are ... enjoy.
Columbus Day is a holiday celebrating the anniversary of the October 12, 1492 arrival of Christopher Columbus to the Americas. Similar holidays, celebrated as Día de la Raza (Day of the Race) in many countries in Latin America, Día de las Culturas (Day of the Cultures) in Costa Rica, Discovery Day in the Bahamas, Día de la Hispanidad in Spain, and the newly-renamed (as of 2002) Día de la Resistencia Indígena (Day of Indigenous Resistance) in Venezuela, commemorate the same event.
Columbus and the Sargasso Sea - Bermuda Triangle
one may unfailingly arrive at his chosen goal or destination.
I should not proceed by land to the East, as is customary, but by a Westerly route,
in which direction we have hitherto no certain evidence that any one has gone.
