describe gulliver's stay in lilliput and in blefuscu

Gulliver’s stay in Lilliput is filled with strange experiences. After he assures Lilliputians of his good behaviour, he is given a place to live and becomes a favourite of the court. He also gets the permission to roam around the city. He assists the Lilliputians to subdue their neighbours, the Blefuscudians, by stealing their fleet. However, when he refuses to reduce the island nation of Blefuscu to a province of Lilliput, he is charged with treason. He is convicted and sentenced to be blinded, but with the assistance of a kind friend, he escapes from Lilliput.

Gulliver’s stay in Blefuscu is quite short. After he reaches Blefuscu, he is guided to the emperor's royal palace. He gets a grand welcome by the emperor and his royal family as they come out to greet him. He then lies prostrate on the ground to honor the emperor and empress by kissing their hands. He believes that his stay would deepen the conflict between Lilliput and their kingdom and so he stays there only for a month. He gets a ship ready stocked with provisions to set sail and takes leave of the emperor and his family.
