"What's that?" asked Gub-Gub,广州🎸 pointing to the thermometer.
"Oh,历史🚲 by the way,意义🐉 Doctor,意义📟" said the leader,意义😎 turning back a moment,历史🏦 "did you ever hear of a man called Christopher Columbus?"
"There isn't any other place I like as well,历史🐘" said Mudface. "It's so hard to find a country where you're not disturbed these days."
