  • Amerigo!, Amerigo Vespucci.
  • Dear, what should we name him?
  • Amerigo Vespucci was born on March 9, 1454 in Florance Italy
  • Years Later...
  • Hey Amerigo what was your previous job before this ship-outfitting buisness?
  • Amerigo Vespucci used to be a banker for the Medicis before he did the ship-outfitting buisness.
  • Well, I used to be a banker.
  • Hello Christopher  what brings you here?
  • Wait, I know I am gonna be an explorer and I will find out more about Asia!
  • Christopher Columbus inspires Amerigo to be an explorer and to find a new way to Asia.
  • Well I just got back from my recent journey and I found a new way to get to a  continent called Asia.
  •  On May 10 1497 Amerigo was the first European to sail south across the Equator in new world waters.
  • Hey crew, I think we just passed the Equator that means we are almost there!
  • Amerigo Vespucci landed in the mouth of the Amazon River and he realized that the land (also known as South America) was not Asia so he called it a "New World."
  • Wait, Christopher said this was Asia but I don't think this is Asia I am gonna call this "A New World."
  • Amerigo found many birds in various colors that he has never seen before, He also found a gigantic snake that was 8 times longer then a  mans arm and as wide as a mans waist so he got back on the ship and went home.
  • Wow, there are so many birds here that I have never seen before wait, Is that a snake ahhh!!
