Vasco da Gama's incredible adventure
By: Giulia, Alice, Cate and Dayou
A lucky venture, a lucky venture! Plenty of rubies, plenty of emeralds! You owe great thanks to God, for having brought you to a country holding such riches!
It's 1497 and Vasco da Gama is meeting with King Manuel 1st in Lisbon, Portugal....
Hello Vasco, I'm king Manuel the 1st, I order you to go on an expedition to find India, I will provide you with men and ships.
Off to India!! This is gonna have so many positive consequences for Portugal!
Upon landing, da Gama pretended to be Muslim and began asking suspicious questions about the Arabian Sea and the eastern coast of Africa.
I don't think so...
Hey! I'm Muslim too!
Leave! No one wants you!
When it was discovered that he was Portuguese and not Muslim, he and his crew were chased back out to sea.
We should've thought about the consequences...
