MARCO POLO

by B.K.

My name is Marco Polo . I was born in 1254 in Venice. My fathers name is Niclo Polo ,and my mothers name is Marly Polo .

My father left when I was 1 and returned when I was 14. When my father retiurnd and went on has next voyage I was 16 and I went with him.

On my first voyage I went from Asia to China, discovered ice cream, spaghetti, glasses. During my voyage I married a field worker named Marie in the year 1270.

When I returned no one believed my story. I showed the people my riches and they were maized. Soon later I died of poison in 1326. I was 56 years old.

I am most famous for my trip from Russia to China, where I was born and died. Today I am still known around the world.
