History repeats itself.?

On this exact day five hundred and thirty years ago,
Christopher Columbus set sail from a spanish port.
The purpose was to find a shortcut to India.
Certainly to procure different curry spices for the european taste buds.
Although the natives were initially called indians,
then it was actually native americans – to whom he said hello.
Thus America was discovered – instead of curries and clothing textiles.
Then there was probably tobacco, potatoes and Thanksgiving turkeys back returns.

Maybe this seagull dreams of repeating the trip.?
