How it all started.

The island had a dense vegetation,all the way down to the sea,and in Machico were they landed,Joao Goncalves Zarco sent some of his man,trough the trees to make sure that there wasen't any ferocious beasts.
But all they found was birds.
When they arrived at this bay wich is now called Funchal,the Portugues found a beautifull piece of land,covered with a fabulous forest,so precise that it looked as if someone had planted.
The trees appeard to be of the same size,all the way as far the eye could see.
