I have read a translation of some of his tales of his travels, and more than one adaptation.....and you have to look at things from his POV, his upbringing, and European bias.
Besides, a lot of early explorers came back with some odd tales....like of unicorns, people with faces in their bellies, and cities of gold.....

You know who I'm talking about.
