Seven Cities of Gold

I had a chat with my brother today.  He’s in the army in Iraq.  He was waxing nostalgic, apparently, and looking on eBay at Commodore 128 computer for sale.  He’d also identified a Seven Cities of Gold disk, and wanted to play it.  I told him I’d seen it on an emulator, and proceeded to hunt it down and play it myself during lunch today.

I barely got to my lunch, and I relived my childhood fantasies of conquest and exploration.  While I don’t dream of conquest (very often) any more, sailing across the horizon and discovering new lands and peoples still appeals to me.

While I haven’t yet got the boat (or sponsorship of the queen) yet, I enjoyed this trip down memory lane.
