Bembo landed with all his things and immediately found the commissary of the Holy Land who had come with the company of Captain Mor. He decided to take the trip to Aleppo with Mor, although later, he regretted he had ever met him, because he was a man of little virtue and less civility and not inclined to devotion. At the 22nd hour, Bembo mounted on horseback and went to Father Ambrose, Holy Land, Portuguese, Barsha, Bagiga. He finally took leave, embracing all of them, as was their custom. The mountains continued with frequent ups and downs. Bembo continued the trip when the others arrived. At the foot of a mountain, he saw some salt pools that were very beautiful. At the second hour of night, they dismounted by an earthen house near a cistern called Basse.
