How part of Toni's world looks.
Tony got up and went above deck, breathing deeply. It was a clear day for once, and he was enjoying it. For days, they had battled fierce winds and storms, but their great leader, Vasco da Gama, had no thoughts about going back to Portugal. In fact, he was about the only one who was still excited about this voyage. Well, not the only one. Tony and a few others were still loyal and true, and were anticipating the Indies. But others were getting scared, then worried, then angry.
