When he woke up, he saw that the ship had already floated away. It turns out that the captain, sailors, and merchants did not notice the absence of Sinbad. The traveler wept bitterly. He understood that no one would find him on a deserted island. Sinbad began to walk around the island in search of water and food. He tried not to lose heart, hoping that he could find people. He spent several days in the hope. Once, while walking around the island, he climbed a tree and saw a huge dome. Sinbad thought

At the same time the bird did not notice anything, because compared to her, the person was tiny, like a bug. The next morning the bird wakes up.

Diamonds stick to the meat. And when the birds of prey descend – eagles and hawks, and grab the meat, flying up with it, the merchants drive the birds away from the meat and collect the adhering diamonds.
Sinbad figured out how to escape. He dialed diamonds, lay down on the ground, put on a large piece of meat and tied it to himself. Soon the mountain eagle grabbed the meat and took off. There was a scream and a knock, the eagle threw the meat and flew away. Sinbad stood up and saw a man. He did not pay attention to him, rushed to the meat and did not find a single diamond. Then the merchant exclaimed that he had already thrown a whole bull and had not received a single stone. Suddenly the merchant saw Sinbad in blood and torn clothes. The merchant was frightened, began to ask who he was and how he got here. Sinbad explained everything to him, asked for help to get back to his homeland, promised for this unprecedented diamonds.
The merchant helped Rindbad, for which he gave him diamonds.
The traveler reached the native city of Baghdad for a long time. Here he sold his diamonds and began to trade, as it was before.
