April 2, 1498: After stopping in a busy trading center of Mobasa, where we were not welcome we decided to travel away from the coast, for a faster route to India. It has only been two days since we have left the sight of shore, and already some of the crew members are questioning the knowledge of the Arab pilot. The food has stayed stable, for we have learned how to rationalize it from our first travel through the Atlantic. With the constant flow of food throughout the ship, a good portion of the crew have stayed happy with their duties upon the ship.
