       ecause many time spent there, Marco Polo ends up learning the Mongolian language and remains in China during sixteen years. He carries out several missions, in particular that of governor of a city. But, the Polo would wish to return to their country, and unfortunately, the Emperor Kubilaï Khan is not laid out yet to let them leave.
