December 16, 1498: We have finally reached the city of Mobasa again, and it has taken us twice as long, for this time we are traveling against the wind, instead of with it. From this great delay we have been eating hardtack, oatmeal, sauerkraut, and algae infested water again for the past week. The crew has been constantly complaining since we have left India. Things have seemed to take a turn for the worse ever since we have left India, maybe this is the bad luck some of the crew had predicted previously in our voyage. I hope this is the worse it gets.
