Hacia dónde señala el dedo de Colón?

As we’ve learnt from Amélie:

“quand le doigt montre le ciel, l’ imbécile regarde le doigt”
(when a finger is pointing up to the sky, only a fool looks at the finger).

That’s probably the reason why – standing in front of this impressive statue –
i ended up asking myself: what is Columbus pointing at?

Well, here we go:
America is in the opposite direction and it’d look kind of
ridiculous
having him point to a mountain right?
Turns out that he’s actually just pointing to the ocean. 🙂

Note to self: Read Geometría para turistas – Claudi Alsina
