Q3: In this journal entry Columbus described the
environment. List three things that he described.
A3:These people are similar to those of the islands just mentioned, and
have the same language and customs. I saw many trees, very dissimilar to
those of our country, and many of them had branches of different sorts
upon the same trunk; and such a diversity was among them that it was the
greatest wonder in the world to behold. Thus, for instance, one branch of
a tree bore leaves like those of a cane, another branch of the same tree,
leaves similar to those of the lentisk. In this manner a single tree bears
five or six different kinds.
Here are also whales. Beasts, we saw none, nor any creatures on land save
parrots and lizards, but a boy told me he saw a large snake. No sheep nor
goats were seen, and although our stay here has been short, it being now
noon, yet were there any, I could hardly have failed of seeing them.
