4 Lectures 26 and 27 We ran along the coast of the island, westward from the islet and found its length to be 12 leagues as fas as a cape which I named Cabo Hermoso (Cape Beautiful), at the western end. The is- land is beautiful,... I believe that there are many herbs and many trees that are worth much in Europe for dyes and for medicines; but I do not know them and this causes me great sorrow. There are trees of a thousand sorts, and all have their several fruits; and I feel the most unhappy man in the world not to know them, but I am well assured they are valuable. I desired to set out today for the island of Cuba, which I think must be Cipangu, according to the signs these people make, indicative of its size and riches,... It is better to go where there is great entertainment, so I say that it is not reasonable to wait, but rather to continue the voyage and in- spect much land, until some very pro table country is reached, my belief being that it will be rich in spices.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
