Secret Departure for Spain
He used the name Jose Mercado, a cousin from Binan.

May 3, 1882- Rizal departed on board the Spanish steamer
SALVADORA bound for Singapore.

Rizals departure for Spain was kept secret to avoid
detection by the Spanish authorities and the friars. Even his
own parents did not know because he knew they, especially
his mother, would not allow him to go.

Secret departure for Spain
Only his older brother (Paciano),
his uncle (Antonio Rivera father of
Leonor Rivera), his sisters (
Neneng and Lucia), the Valenzuela
Family ( Capitan Juan and
Capitana Sanday and their daughter
Orang), Pedro A. Paterno, his
compadre Mateo Evangelista, and
Ateneo Jesuits fathers and some
intimate friends, including
Chengoy (Jose M. Cecilio).

captain from Asturias,
May 8, 1882- while the
steamer was approaching
Singapore, Rizal saw a
beautiful island.
Fascinated by its scenic
beauty, he remembered
Talim Island with the
Susong Dalaga.

May 9, 1882- the
Salvadora docked at
Singapore. Rizal landed
and registered at HOTEL
DE LA PAZ, and spent
two days on a sightseeing
soiree of the city, which
was a colony of England.

Rizal transferres into another ship Djemnah,a french steamer
which left Singapore for Europe on May 11. it was a larger,
cleaner vessel which carried more passengers. Among these
passengers were British, French, Dutch, Spaniards, Malays,
Siamese, and Filipinos ( Mr. and Mrs. Salazar, Mr. Vicente
Pardo, and Jose Rizal).
May 17- the Djemnah reached Point Galle, a seacoast town in
Southern Ceylon (now Sri Lanka).
The following day the djemnah weighed anchor and resumed
the voyage towards Colombo the capital of Ceylon. After a few
hours of sailing, she reached this city on the same day.

Suez Canal
From Colombo, the
Djemnah continued the voyage
crossing the Indian Ocean to
the Cape of Guardafui, Africa.

At the next stop over- in Aden-
Rizal went ashore to see the
sights. He found the city
hotter than Manila.

First Trip to Suez Canal
From Aden, the Djemnah proceeded to the city of the
of Suez, the Red Sea terminal of the Suez Canal. Upon
arrival at Suez, Rizal disembarked and went
sightseeing, like an ordinary tourist.
It took the Djemnah five days to transverse the Suez
Canal. Rizal was thrilled because it was his first trip
through this canal which was built by Ferdinand de
Lesseps (French diplomat engineer). It was
inaugurated on November 17, 1869. at Fort Said, the
Mediterranean terminal of the Suez canal, Rizal
landed to hear the multi-racial inhabitants speaking a
babel of tongues- Arabic, Egyptian, Greek, French,
Italian, Spanish, etc.
