    http://pub.tv2.no/multimedia/na/arch...en_226799g.jpg

    Did the famous Chinese sailor Zheng He who in the period 1405 to 1432 sailed trough the Indian Ocean to Africa and picked up a Chiraffe to the Chinese Emperor also went a trip around the world? In the link you will se the Chinese world map from 1763 that is supposedly to be a copy of a map from 1418. The map shows all the world continents including Antarctica.

    Sounds like the same story as the PBS TV program of a couple of years ago "1421 - The Year China Discovered America" .

      I'm sure the Common People were the last to know the secret about a new world by way of Columbus' big mouth.
