thank you, what an adventurous episode again. Wouldn't have wanted to be caught in this tsunami-like wave :?

One small snippet to be made here:

> at 4:51: (p. 347) repeat can be cut: "his own ship was sudddenly lifted"

thank you, the rest was perfect

again another testimony to the greediness of the Spanish discoverer... a good text though and excellently read, thank you so much :)

just one small thing here:

> at 0:19: "the World Story" – you say "history"

On a personal note I would have left out "quote/end quote" around the direct speeches, it makes the text a bit cumbersome to listen to when it happens so often. Sometimes you do it, sometimes you don't, I would have left them all out. But no need to go back and cut them now, it's also fine as it is.

Thanks

Sonia
