Amerigo Vespucci was born on March 9, 1454 in Florance Italy
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!!
