If it is okay with you sir, I would like to bring my son.
I will allow it. I would be very interested to meet this son of yours. Go to Venice and find him.
I see why not, tell me about this "Europe." Also, while you travel, is there anyone you would like to travel with you?
Great Kublai Khan, we have come to your kingdom to tell tales of Europe and offer our trading services.
Father, I am so happy you are here! I'm so excited to be traveling with you on your journies, and meeting Kublai Khan! Tell me all about your previous travels!
Come time son, come time. For now, let us depart on our trecharous journey to Kublai Khan!
For many years, Marco, his father, and uncle, commenced many travels and trades along the Silk Road. They helped keep the Mongol Empire strong. Marco saw many amazing things and introduced them to Europe. Now, they are departing.
We have seen many things. It is time we return to Venice.
We are leaving. Kublai Khan is dying. The empire will slowly decline.
I saw great things during my travels. Paper money, rocks that can set fire, many strange things.
I never really thought about that. I think I will write a book.
Soon later, Marco Polo joined a war in Venice, which eventually led him to be captured in a prison.
That sounds very interesting. You should write a book. I could write it for you.
Marco Polo died in 1324. But not before he published his book, "The Travels of Marco Polo." Many historians today argue whether Marco Polo actually saw these things, based on historical records of Asia. But nevertheless, Marco Polo set the path for future explorers such as Christopher Columbus.
Marco Polo was a fraud!
No way! He was the greatest explorer that ever lived!
