(Insula de brazil)

En Inbèrnia ha moltes illes merevellosas ...


In Hibernia [Ireland] there are many wonderful islands whose existence can be credible; among them, there is a small one where men never die, because when they are about to die of old age, they are transported outside the island. There are no snakes, frogs, nor poisonous spiders, because the soil repels them given that this is where Lacerie Island [Cléire/Clear Island] is located.Furthermore, there are trees that attract birds like ripe figs. There is also another island where women never give birth, because when they are about to give birth, they are taken outside the island as it is customary.
