Tristão da Cunha 1460-1540. In the year of 1514 he commanded an Embassy to the Pope Leo X with several exotic animals. One of them an elephant named Hanno. The other famous animal that never made it to Rome was a rhino, due to a shipwreck in a storm in the Mediterranean Sea from the caravel where it was being transported. However, this animal became famous throughout Europe due to the design of Albrecht Dürer made only by the description of the animal.

Tristão da Cunha the man that named the island.

To send mail art to Tristan da Cunha is certainly a must.  To get there has no name. 

"Firstly, no one disembarks in the only city (Edinburgh of the Seven Seas) without permission from the local government, which can be achieved by following in the footsteps of the island's official website. They come and go with documents, information and payments that can make the wait last a year. Then, you need to get a seat on the boats that make the round trip to and from there. The accounts are from Cape Town and a very low offer: 10 per year, with only 12 free seats for passengers in 90% of them.

Finally, the traveler still needs to hope that São Pedro is in a good mood, because no ship sets sail in bad weather - neither on the way out nor on the way back"  Oh Lord!!!!!
