It's NOVEMBER 19, 1493.
He told the King in his letter: "I sail the NORTH coast to WERE IT SETS". The "west" is where the sun sets. In the WEST of our country there are 6 villages: Aguadilla, Aguada, Rincón, Añasco, Mayaguez and Cabo Rojo, in the face of the uncertainty that there was for centuries, the 6 said to be the place of the first European landings. TODAY it is known that it reached west to AGUADA (where they refreshed and supplied) on the coast between RINCON and mainly AÑASCO.

The 17 ships anchored in a very large area of this large port, where ridge of mountains protected them from the north winds. We have been told that Columbus did NOT go down to AÑASCO lands, but nevertheless Columbus gives a rather detailed description of a Taíno village and clarifies: "HERE I SEE". Nothing else with the witness, HE GOT OFF; because humanly it's impossible for me to see all that from the boat. In the 2 days they were in the island, apart from AÑASCO , those 1,500 people could easily have set foot in lands of what is now Rincón and Mayaguez.

Columbus wrote:
"HERE I SAW VERY GOOD HOUSES AND ORNAMENTS, ..." (does not say shacks, hut made of straw; he says "VERY GOOD HOUSES").
he says that on the way to some houses there are nets and reeds placed on both sides of the road) ... that must look nice.
"... THEY CAME FROM THE HOUSES TO THE SEA." in the houses (and keeps saying houses) they had paths that gave them direct access to the beach.
He noted the roads that end in the square plaza had a kind of door-shaped roof that it was so well built that in Spain (Valencia) they would get a seal of approval.
Colon is known to have wanted to make contact with the natives, but it was not possible. When our Taínos saw the ships, they moved to the high ground to observe from a safe distance the unknowns that were approaching. That's why he didn't manage to talk to any of the Taino Indians of the island.

Christopher Columbus and the 1,500 people who accompanied him in his 17 ships DID NOT pass with "much haste" through our territory as they have always hinted at us. From the time they entered through VIEQUES until they left by the MONA CANAL towards Haiti (Spanish) several days passed. There are connoisseurs who claim that this tour of Puerto Rican waters stretched for about 5 days and others, about 6; of which 2, came ashore.

THIS WAS WRITTEN BY CHRISTOPHER COLOMBUS HAND AND PEN:

... ACCORDING TO MY CRITERIA IS BIGGER THAN SICILIA ..." (he saw Puerto Rico very big but his comparison was wrong, Sicily is 3 times larger; perhaps it was because after having been in the Lesser Antilles seeing so much small island he was struck by the size of our country).
.
"... OF BIGGER LANDS AND MORE BEAUTIFUL ..." (well, that's true, it's much more beautiful)
.
"... TO WHICH I GAVE THE NAME OF SAN JUAN BAUTISTA ..." (Columbus named the Big Island: San Juan Bautista, and that is how our country was called for centuries while its capital was called City of Puerto Rico; eventually it was reversed, and the island was called Puerto Rico and its capital City of San Juan).
By: El Boricuazo.

So today we observed in the island the day Puerto Rico was discovered buy Christopher Columbus on his second voyage to the new world. But as our friend and historian ‘El Boriciazo” points out the island was call BORIQUÉN by the Taino Indians that live there well before Columbus arrival. Nevertheless, it’s part of our island’s history and the rich cultural legacy of the Taino, Spanish and African roots of our island.

The Gods of my Tribe have spoken, and they say, “do not trust the pilgrims and let the turkey HUNT begin” In the true celebration of “DF Thankskilling” The Foreign Legion will be hunting down all the red turkeys out of the dogfight Elite sky’s. The tribal hunter that has the most turkey killed buy the end of Thankskilling will be this year’s winner and recipient of the “Thankskiller 2019 award”. Other tribes are welcome to participate but you will have to post on the TFL forum you’re in game name so I can locate you. All the Foreign Legion tribe hunters will be participating automatic only members of brother tribes have to post their info to participate. You have until this Friday to join in the HUNT. The turkey killing will begin Saturday and will end Friday 29 of November at 11: 59pm Est. time. I will make screen captures of how many turkeys kills each member of the Foreign Legion and guest hunters have and then again at the end of the Thankskilling. So, start to stuff those birds with bullets and let the HUNT begin.
Turkeys beware!!!

The Gods of my Tribe are pleased with the bloodshed of the turkeys. “Thankskilling is over!” The Foreign Legion tribal hunters had a good poaching this Thankskilling. But we have a clear hunter that stood out and really went over kill on the DF Turkeys.

This year’s Thankskilling winner and best hunter is
‘FRITS” with 391 turkeys killed out of the DF Elite skies.
Congratulations Frits you are Tougher than the Rest!

.
Other brave hunters manage to display great skills during this year’s Thankskilling; stuffing those birds with lots of bullets. Those brave warriors were: S.Dali with 100 kills and Pegoud with 98 kills. Thank you to all the Foreign Legion tribe hunters for participating on this year’s Thankskilling and to the vegetarians we hope you can participate on the next massacre.
