for fourteen of those thirty-three, I was becalmed and made little progress.
I have come with the fleet that Your Highnesses gave me from the Indies, to which I crossed in thirty-three days after departing from your kingdoms;
I could get no information because, at every cape I reached, the people fled and I could not speak to them;
I thought that if I hugged the coast I could not fail to find some town or great city, such as are described by those who have been ashore in that province.
After following this coast for some way, I found that it was carrying me north rather than west, and I found that the wind was coming from hat direction.
I decided to ride it out until it changed, because winter was now drawing on, and my sole objective was to flee from there, to the south, and so I turned back.
