    It had been about two months since it had rained in that land, and when we reached that port, it happened to rain, whereupon they said that we came from the sky and that we had brought the rain with us. In this narration can be found descriptions of peoples, countries, goods and even the languages that were spoken, of which the seafarer was trying to assemble some brief glossaries. The squadron anchored in the Bay of Rio on December 13, and had the luck to arrive with the rain, which the well- disposed natives thought they had brought with them. Two ships sailed in to find out if it were a strait or a river, and Magellan waited for five days until the two vessels returned with the news that the water was salt. Ten days later, they dropped anchor at the Philippine island of Cebu—they were only about miles from the Spice Islands. Then every week, he cuts off a small bit, which he eats thus smoked with his other food to remind him of his enemies.

    Only three ships entered the passage; one had been wrecked and another deserted. These two captains and the other officers of the squadron attended a meeting in the flagship some days after the squadron had entered the strait. Throughout his life he made only one friend, Francisco Serrano.

Whomever the latter captured afterward at any time from the former they ate, and the former did the same to the latter, so that such a custom has sprung up in this way. When the intrepid seaman had passed this point, originally called the Cape of Desire, he faced an ocean that he named Pacific, because, beyond the strait, fair weather set in.

After the journey[ edit ] About two months after ending his trip, Graham's daughter, Quimby, was born. Relying on his maps and globes, Magellan thought that he had about thirty or forty degrees of longitude to traverse to the Spice Islands, but he had degrees in front of him.
