vasca da gama glog By Noah Lerner

Vasco da Gama was a Portuguese noble and boat captain. He was the first European explorer to ride around Africa and to reach India.

As a kid, he went to the navy to ride ships as a skill. He also was taught about great navigation. This skill will help people find where they want to go.

Vasco da Gama was born in Sines, Portugal in 1460. His father was in the town council of this place. His family had a huge social status.

Da Gama arrived in the Indian city of Calicut in May, 1498 but the city’s merchants were not pleased that Da Gama and his crew were arriving to them.

In 1497 he led an expedition around the continent of Africa. He wanted to reach India by sailing. Other explorers could not find it. He left on July 8, 1497. Da Gama and his crew's expeditions were fascinating.

Da Gama had knowledge that his ship was arriving closer to India. In April da Gama stopped at the coast of Kenya. Some of the people there hardly liked the Portuguese so they tried to damage da Gama ship’s anchor.

Their ride back to Portugal was very stormy. Later they built Portuguese trading centers on the coast and city. In 1524 da Gama was named viceroy of all India. India became the center of the spice trade.
