Almost nine years has been passed since I returned from the voyage to Africa. I have not sailed for several years, but now I am feeling to sail again. I might be quite old for exploration. Though, I cannot live without adventures and thrill. For that reason, I am accompanying my friend, Vasco da Gama. Again, we are going to Africa, but not the Cape of Storm, which is now renamed as the Cape of Good Hope. Our goal is to go to the Cape Verde Islands, the land that is prospered in the ivory trade. For Portugal’s prosperity, da Gama and I are going Cape Verde Islands to obtain ivories. If this voyage is successful, our king will be glad and our country will become wealthier.
