Spain, Italy, Algeria

Last month I went to visit an exhibition about musical instruments in Cervantes' Work, there were over 100 pieces; some of them so unusal that I would like to hear. On the other hand, I was surprised how many instruments known Cervantes, of course from Spain but too from Italy and the prosperous city of Algeria.

Cervantes and other great novelist seem to know so much about so many differentes things... Did he hear so many instruments? I guess so.

But, there was an even bigger surprise to me, The Royal Botanic Garden has suggested a self-guidded tour of plants in the Quixote. You can see only (!) 22 because there are 370 in the novel and 835! in the complete literary work.
