Cervantes and Quixote

Guanajuato has lots of things related to Cervantes and Quixote.  Today I visited the Museo Iconografico Del Quijote.  There is an entire museum devoted to paintings and art about Don Quixote.   Though I am not a huge art fan and have never read Don Quixote, I enjoyed seeing the many different types of art based on the novel by Cervantes.  Every October there is an event several weeks long devoted to the work by Miguel de Cervantes as well, with people coming from all over the world.  I should read Don Quixote while I am here, but have not come across an English copy.  The book is over 900 pages, which I do not plan to read on my iPod's small screen.

That was what I was going to say - you should read the book while you're there. If you can't get a copy while in Mexico, I suppose adding it to your summer reading list would be the next best thing.

He's got style! I don't know much about him either--maybe a summer read??
