I had heard of Simón Bolívar before but, as I’ve never been to South America and my general education has certain undeniable gaps, it was only yesterday that the name started to make sense.

Probably not many people can claim that they’ve been president of 4 countries (and that they even have a country named after them). He also crossed more kilometers than Christopher Columbus and Vasco da Gama together.

Oh, and in his free-time he more or less liberated half of South America.
