Goodbye honey. Itś time for me to leave and trade on the Silk Road.
AND MAKE A SMART TRADE THIS TIME!!!
On Thursday, the merchant traveled with porcelain, rhubarb, herbal medicine, and silk up to the Gobi Desert. On Friday he got all the way across it. When he started to move again he was almost robbed by bandits and when he set up camp again, he was at the base of the Pamir Mountains. 3 weeks later he reached Rome.
Can I trade you my camel for that silk?
Could you also throw in some of the clothes you are making?
This has been one of my greatest trades!!! This trip was really worth it, because I could get almost everything I wanted!!!
Though I should have gone with other people in a caravan and maybe the bandits wouldn´t have attacked me
Little did he realize that he would have to take a 3 week trip home.
