kimmygibblershomework: If it were Cortez, it would be Cibola they are referring to, subby, which is in the Hopi/Zuni indian area. Pizarro was the El Dorado goon extraordinaire. Although I have never heard it referred to as Ciudad Blanca or whatever, I guess that is the Honduran legend as it did take many forms. I read a book in middle school that was basically an account of hunting for it (fun read) that told such fanciful stories as 8 sheep fleeces full of gold dust that they were transporting on mule train until ambushed. The buried the bamboo containers with the gold dust are still out there as are the stone ruins of the once gilded city. He had it placed in Brazil, off the Orinoco. Oh well. Good times.
