en, he marched away fromthe sickly seaboard into the interior. The simple natives were astonishedby the display of cavalry and other men in armor. After a few days of adelightful march, in the beauty of spring in that country, he entered uponthe long cheap nike air max sought Cibao. He relinquished his first idea of founding anothercity here, but did build a fortress called St. Thomas, in joking referencetoCedoand others, who had asserted that these regions produced no gold.
While building this fortress, as it was proudly called, he sent a youn nike air max canada gcavalier named Luxan for further exploration.
Luxan returned with stories even greater than they had heard of before,but with no gold, „because he had no orders to do so.“ He had found ripegrapes. And at last they had found a region called Cipangi, cipansignifying stone. This name recalled the memory of Cipango, or Japan.
With tidings as encouraging as this, Columbus returned to his city. Heappointed his brother and Pedro Margarita governors of the city, and leftwith three ships for the further exploration of Cuba, which he had le nike air max 2013 ft nike air max onl cheap nike air max trainers ypartly examined in his first voyage. He believed that it was the mainlandof Asia. And as has been said, such was his belief till he died, and that ofhis countrymen. Cuba was not known to be an island for many yearsafterwards.
