Departing From Spain
Today I had been gathered at a villa in Sagres, built by Prince Henry the Navigator himself. He had gathered many very skilled mapmakers, geographers and navigators as I am my self. We are told that we will be sailing south to explore the western and southern coasts of Africa. We are embarking on this journey in many ships departing from a harbour by the name of Lagos. Our journey has now begun and we are sailing south to Africa as I write. We hope to find new land for our country, slaves, gold and other precious metals, spices and to spread our Christian faith. I am praying for our fleet's health and well being.
