Dear journal,

Now it's 1513, time for my first voyage to Panama. Let's go. All aboard! Life at sea could be hard, but all explorers, like me are up for the challenge. I know about scurvy, but that's not going to scare me because I am a Francisco Pizzaro! Oh no! Look we're are moving away from the port. Im'm not going to panic. Just going to think orf the calm seas-" What was that?" "That's just the ship's anchor, calm down captain", replied one of the sailors. During this voyage I'm becoming lesser and lesser scared of the high seas, I might even do this again. I see a land. 'Land Ho!", I screamed. I'm thinking this is Panama. Hey, look there is man at the island, I wonder who that is?
Guess , I said " Hola" to him and he said that he was Diego de Almago. On my first voyage I had made an aquaintance. We met Hernando de Luque also.
I sailed to Panama and met the Inca empire and, sadly, captured the Inca emperor. I sailed again in 1526.My voyages was a fun, but I did make a few mistakes. I was a greedy person and I did very bad things. Well, that was my life was, I made a very bad mistakes.

Hola, my name is Francisco Pizzaro. I was born in Trujillo, Spain in 1475? I wanted to sail for a voyage at young age, so I sailed in 1513 to Panama, now known as central America. I sailed to seek fame and fourtune in America that was recently discovered. I reached Panama, the land I planned to sail to. I soon met Diego de Almago and Hernando Luque. I formed a partnership with both of them. On Panama I discovered the Inca Empire and met with the Inca Emperor. There I found gold, silver, and many other riches. By September 1532, I planned to meet Atahualpa, the emperor of Incas. I planned to make him my prisonor. 200 of my men and I set off to the city of Cajamacara. On November 16th I reached Cajamacara, hid away from sight, and captured the Emperor, as the Incas had no weapons. I asked for a very high ransom, but after the ransom was paid I had the Inca emperor killed. Soon, my ungrateful partner, Almagro felt I had cheated him out of money. I broke into war and soon he was killed. Almagro's followers attacked and killed me in my palace in Lima, on June 26th, 1541. That finished me.
