  • One of the bad things about exploring with Hernan Cortes is there is a lot of people on the boat. Hernan burned ten boats but we got to explore Mexico. Hernan liked to explore. The people that we meet didn’t like the Aztecs. When we discovered the Aztecs they were very nice to us. They though Hernan was a god. When he figured it out he was greedy and asked for more gold.

  • Hi, I was on the ship mate on Hernan Cortés's ship. The ship was miserable. I was in the bottom of the ship and wasn’t aloud to get out unless I did work on the ship. There were many people around me and they had diseases and everyone was starving. Other ships would also come after us. The ships tired to rob us. I heard that Hernan soldiers left him and didn’t have anyone for a period of time.
