Vasco de Gama.  During his voyage to India, Vasco de Gama landed at Malindi, on the coast of what became Kenya.  Here, early in 1498, he managed to obtain a pilot to guide his fleet across the sea to his goal - the trading port of Calicut.  Original artwork for illustration on p12 of Look and Learn issue no 844 (18 March 1978).
