They become bored of a man with wings, of a man who is unlike any other. This is precisely the opposite in Marquez’s “Drowned man”.

On every twelfth of October, nations across the world, from Spain to the Bahamas, celebrate the voyage and discovery of the soon to be Americas led by the notorious European explorer Christopher Columbus. On August 3rd, 1492, Columbus led his “three ships - the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria - out of the Spanish port of Palos” in order to sail west until he reached the Indies where the riches of gold, pearls and spice awaited him!
