Cabeza de Vaca and North America

Which conquistador would you have wanted to travel with: Cabeza de Vaca, Orellana, Pizarro, or Cortes?

Each conquistador made a different contribution to the world and each had a different leadership style -- with both positive and negative qualities.


I think cortes.....

I think i'll travel with cortes because he was able to meet Moctezuma, and he was also able to built mexico city, even though he destroyed tenochtitlan i still think that Cortes also had a reason to destroy tenochtitlan and built Mexico City.
