What is the world, or how does it present itself? And are we facing the world or are we always included in it? For this purpose, the travel description has to behave incessantly and again differently, because the one who captures the world can travel it. So, with the flimsy Portalon maps of the Middle Ages, they fumbled along the fringes of the Mediterranean, and down and down the African continent, always watching the fall over the edges of the earth. Keeping an eye on the polar, Kolumbu relied on Ptolemy, who had re-launched himself, and ventured away from the rulers across the great pond. And though Kolurnbus did not doubt the spherical shape of the earth, he brought Magellan with a fresh orbit around the world, and at the same time a new terror: the world halfway covered by an infinite ocean, twirls around its own acne, for only then In the static system of time-scheduling, the gain of one day in the case of a departure from east to west must be explained, and the necessity which now arises must of necessity be limited to a data limit. The Venetian Pigafetta, one of eighteen, who survived this first trip around the world and witnessed in his first autotelic trip around the world, turns into Felicitas Hoppe Roman Pigafetta the nighting partner of the kh-narrator. So you could put up with Pigafetra begins, finds a tentative ending point in Hoppe.
