A photo op with Don Quixote

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we won't be taking a summer vacation this year, but we plan to enjoy a few day trips instead. Today my husband and I went to Alcalá de Henares, a city near Madrid. Among other fascinating sites, we visited the house, now a museum, where Miguel de Cervantes was born and spent his early childhood. A statue on a bench in front begs tourists to stop for a photo.
