Now i have found myself with a woman named circe. it seemed like i was only there for a couple of days, but the time is slowed down inside the walls of her house. I was there for several seasons, she turned all my men in to animals using a special drink. Thanks to Hermes she was unable to turn me into an animal. He told me to eat a special herb that would make the drink not work.
Thanks to circe, i am now at the land of the dead. She told me that Teiresias could help me get back to Ithaca. I had to sacrifice my best heifer and promise to kill one of my lambs, the black one handsomest of all our flock. He told me that i cannot kill any of the sun gods cattle, or else all my men will die.
