This is brain pop Marco Polo
You look hungry Moby, what do you say we get something to eat? Bee-beep
Hey did you know that Spaghetti, Ravioli, Lasagna, and all of our favorite Italian meals were ideas taken from the Chinese? Bee-beep
Bee-beep So he went East into Asia.
Kublai Khan He made it to China and met Kublai Khan
Khublai hooked him up with oranges and spices, and he discovered many types of recipes that Italians claim as their own now like pizza, lasagna, and spaghetti. You’re my boy Khablai. Holla! Word
He stayed in China for 17 years only to return to Italy, after a tough trip back where pirates stole many of his riches from the orient. Bee-beep
Marco was ready to go back home with many riches but encountered pirates.
Hand over your riches POLO! Snap!
Two years after leaving China, Marco got back with little riches to prove that he went and saw so many amazing things. Bee-beep
However, the things he saw in China were so amazing that most Italians thought he was a liar
They jokingly called his book “Il Milione”which is Italian for “the million lies” Il Milione
This continued all the way to his death. He was never seen as that amazing an explorer until years later. Bee-beep
So what do you say we go grab some Chinese food! Bee-beep
