"Going to the end of the world" has stopped being so easy since Eratosthene's times.
But overthere our planet still yields some forgotten "Other Places"
which might make us think that - at last! - we have reached one of them,
far away, far enough from everything to see things differently.
Right amidst the Indian Ocean rises a miniature rock,
minute green pebble in the boundless deep blue sea.
An isle , a tiny island, which unveils its secrets with the wind blowing past.
After eighteen months spent over there on Amsterdam Island,
here are those I wish to share out with you.
