The Trip

Cocos Island is a small island 300 miles off the coast off Costa Rica. It has been a
Costa Rican possession sense 1868. This Island has been famous for sometime because of
the many stories and legends told over time about hidden treasure. There were a few
legends about pirates who dropped their loot there. The most famous ones were Benito
Bonito, Captain Bennett Graham and William Thompson. All these main stories and other
stories give us the idea of hidden treasure still reaming on the island. According to
legend, over $1 billion of treasure is still there buried in the sand and in the
unforgivable jungles steep hillsides. I am proposing a trip to the island to search for
the treasures that are still unaccounted for to this day.

The trip I am proposing is a well-planed expedition form Costa Rica to Cocos Island.
Along with me, the trip will include my 10 hand selected men from all over the world.
These men have the knowledge and experience to help locate the treasure. We have men who
have researched the treasure and also men who can help locate the treasure. I am teamed up
with Jon Smith, who has been to the island before and knows the procedure of getting to
the island, once our team gets to Costa Rica. We have made arrangements with the Costa
Rican Government to have one of there finest ships sail us the 300 miles to the island.
We would like you to understand that our well-planed trip is very serious and is within
reach with your contribution.

There are many steeps that have already been taken to get the trip underway. The first
and most serious steep is gaining permission from the Costa Rican Government, witch we
just have been granted. The conditions are that we must split our finding with them. This
among other things makes us believe that there is treasure there. This is the major step
that we have been waiting for. Now that this step has been made our crew has become very
excited to get the expedition underway. A small government establishment has been
maintained at Water Bay, mainly to supervise treasure hunting, this is where we intend our
crew to be dropped off. We first planed to stay on the island for six weeks but I don’t
believe we have the funds to stay the entire six weeks. We will now plan to stay four
weeks total on our trip. This means only three weeks on the island. We our sure that our
crew has done the sufficient research to locate and recover the island’s treasure in the
allotted amount of time. This could be a very good opportunity for you to make a small
investment that might pay off big for you.

I now I just can’t tell you all about the treasure and have you believe it so here is a
little information that you might find interesting. In 1818 Captain Bennett Graham, got
the whole idea started. As the story goes Graham’s fortune of 350 tons of gold galleon
stolen from Spanish galleons, was buried on the island. Mary Welch, one of the

The reason being that he was a very respected and or feared pirate among everyone that knew him. He had a very complex personality, at first he seemed to be the kindest person is the whole book, but later he really reveals what he is capable of and you soon learn it is really a act. Long John Silver is a very hard man to understand. It’s very hard to even descri

Will the beach be crowded? Will the salt water make me gasp as I stick my feet in? Will I hear the bells of the ice cream man? But as I asked myself these questions, I

There is no debate in this obvious fact. Omeros and Derek Walcott\'s writing, however, are much more than a mere reproduction of classical Greek and Roman themes. Arguing this fact is an i
