An Interesting Cup of Chocolate

On January 11, 1935, the legendary aviator Amelia Earhart became the first person to fly solo across the Pacific Ocean from Honolulu, Hawaii to Oakland, California. During the flight Amelia became cold from the high altitude. Luckily she had brought along a thermos of hot chocolate. After the flight she commented, "Indeed, that was the most interesting cup of chocolate I have ever had, sitting up eight thousand feet over the middle of the Pacific Ocean, quite alone."
