Diary Entry On The Silk Road
Chen march, 7, 209 I am turning 18 today and I am getting a will from my grandfather for all of his money, so today I am going to start out on a journey on the silk road. First i need to buy some supplies from my hometown beygin. First I will buy some silk pants and some weapons for some self protection. Next I will buy a silk banner ,a silk shirt ,and a glass plate. I also need to buy a sword and a bow and some arrows for protection or trading. The last thing I need to buy is a horse to carry my goods from point a to point b quicker. After i buy my horse I will set out to the silk road from my home town beygin. I have stopped and noticed that there are not that many paths from beygin to the capital of china. …show more content…
So I figured that he and I were headed the same direction and that we could stick together for the trip.
Chen July, 28, 209 So I asked him what his name was and he said that it was actius and they were headed back to Rome to trade some silk for some glass. When I asked him if he wanted to travel with me he said yes and plus it is safer to travel together than alone.
Chen August, 3, 209 I asked how he got stuck there and he said that he wandered off to the voices in his head and then the caravan left him behind.

When he left I wished him luck and hoped for good safe travels to him and he wished me luck to I don't think i will ever forget hi as a friend and a traveling companion. Today when i go into town i hope to find some pieces of iron and some glass bottles also some pieces of plants and seeds wouldn't be bad because when I retire I don't want to fall apart and become a pile of fat that just lies around all day yelling at people who pass by. For my retirement I want to be a farmer and to get daily exercise from chores that I do on a daily basis. Another thing I would like is a lesson book on buddhism and hinduism so I can learn what the gentlemen around the fire were talking about but besides the iron and seeds and glass I also see people starving and those who are fat and I think I should try to help those who are starving and so I am going to give 1 glass bottle to every family I see going hungry. Anyway its getting late and I need a place to stay again.

Today I couldn't find them and so I think I am going to just have to buy grape seeds and wait until tomorrow to get some orange tree seeds and I partially think that there is a trader here who even trades for seeds. Another thing I would like
