1. You are a Roman Catholic Church lawyer whose home is Paris. You speak French, Latin, and a little Greek. As a young man, you decide to travel abroad. Uncannily, you begin and end your travels in the same year that Ibn Battuta did (1325 and 1354), and you travel to many if not all of the same places that he did. You are traveling, however, as a Western European Christian, not a Muslim legal scholar who speaks Arabic and Persian. Write a first-person account of your twenty-nine years of travel, telling about your itinerary, your adventures, your problems, and your crises. Be concrete and specific about geography, places, kingdoms, ethnic peoples, and so on.
