I am proposing that Odysseus first travelled to Egypt after the Trojan War. By sailing down the then existent Sesostris Canal into the Red Sea, Odysseus came to the Indian Ocean and ventured eastwards to India and thence the Orient. From there he crossed the equatorial Pacific Ocean to Mexico and Peru. I believe that Odysseus might well be the mysterious, bearded ‘Caucasian teacher’ who is omnipresent in both early Mesoamerican and South American legends. After rounding the Horn of South America he navigated his way along the coast of Brazil and became shipwrecked in the West Indies. A final, climactic voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to Spain in a makeshift boat would have awarded Odysseus the first circumnavigation of the globe c.1160 – 1130 B.C.
