Alas, mis queridos oyentes, back in the day... I was known as " el capitán de la niña loca" because I was the only female captain of that time. One day about 15 years from now...ayyy...must have been around 1490 around that time, I heard that Señor Columbus was going to try to sail to the west reach India. I decided that I would beat him there! I started to prepare my boat "La Mejo" for the longest journey she would've ever undergone. I had inheirited this boat from mi abuelo who was known as "Pedro la Galleta Saladas." My gradfather believed in me and stood strong by my side when people would scoff at me for wanting to sail like a man...
My plan was to leave before Columbus and to steal all the glory for my self. I was going to sail west from Portugal and find a new route to India...
I didn't forget my trusty compass... No mis hijos..I had been lost at sea once before too..but that is a story for another time.
I packed EVERYTHING I thought I needed. I brought loads of food, clothes and some items to trade with. I also brought one of the copies of "Marco Polo's Travels" just in case some people I meet along the way might be interested.
Then came the day I left land. All the people called me "el capitán de la niña loca" but I left them. I left early in the morning and set sail on "La Mejo" on the most beautiful day. The sky was clear and the ocean was blue.
Then, one day... storms hit. I was rocked back and forth and had hardly tied all the supplies down when I was thrown off the ship...
I held on though and then climbed back on my ship and I turned us away from the storm and sailed away...
Then mis hijos, a few days after the storm, spectactular thing happened! I landed in India!
