49 - QUESTION: What Silk Road traveler is reputed to have said: "I have told only half of what I saw!"?
Answer: Marco Polo.
Marco Polo's book about his journey, called "The Travels of Marco Polo," was widely disbelieved during his lifetime. As he was dying, Marco Polo was again asked to admit that he had lied. He refused, insisting, "I have told only half of what I saw!" The airport in Venice is named in his honor.
