Chinese beat Columbus and Magellan

Even the Chinese beat Columbus and Magellan. Zhang He sailed around the world about 1421 according to historian Menzies. I will have to pick up his book when it is published.

I’ve never been a fan of Columbus Day. I think the Norse beat him across the Atlantic centuries earlier.
