Today, my crew of eager explorers and I landed on the shore of India, ready for any adventure ahead of us. We were on route for 3 months, and now deciding to spend some time in India to work out trading plans, before heading back to Portugal.
King Manuel I (the Portuguese king) sponsored our trip, and provided the necessities for this long, dangerous voyage.
