helped them by giving them two gifts. One gift
was a "good wind" this wind would take them back home. And the second was a "bad wind" that wind would give Odysseus' crew a bad time controlling

The sirens weren't the only obstacle. Scylla and Charybdis were now ahead, waiting their arrival so that they could eat them for lunch. Odysseus encouraged his men to continue their journey home. Along the way Odysseus lost some of his men but some made it alive.
After surviving all this dangers the crew decided to make a brief stop even though Odysseus though against it. In the island Odysseus crew ate the cattle that lived in the island. Little did they know that that was God Helios' cattle. In revenge Zeus kills everyone leaving Odysseus by himself.

started eating Odysseus' crew
until there were only 6 left. Odysseus had a plan which was to

he became blind. Odysseus and his crew tied themselves
to Polyphemus’ sheep to escape the cave and
flee the island.
