Round here, we celebrate Columbus.
No; celebrate is too strong a word. Commemorate is a better one.
Whatever the situation, we have holidays round this time. After all, the island of Guanahani, where the new world landfall took place, is somewhere in our archipelago. Or in the Turks & Caicos, which is part of our archipelago (pace TCIslanders).
Anyway. Today was a holiday.
Spent it on the beach, eating.
