Meeting Francis Drake

We live in Coquimbo and with my grandson, we have visited Fort Lambert where Francis Drake is supposed to have arrived… There we bought him a sword, hat and pirate's patch. The books were for my grandson's birthday and my daughter read them for him. Apparently he was delighted. Thank you.
