Vasquez Encounters a PROBLEM!

Vasquez's Failure

First, Vasquez DID Indeed Find The Seven Cities Of Gold, But When he arrived he found out that it was a Hoax, Prank, Fake, Whatever you want to call it. He based his whole expedition on finding it, and becoming rich and famous from the gold and amazing discovery. Second, when he got there he was killed by the people living there because when he was trying to find any type of gold located there or around there he stole things that looked like gold or looked just as valuable.
