Busker What’s Your Story? Toledo, 2019

Don Quixote Street Performer Toledo, Spain

“When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness. To surrender dreams — this may be madness. Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!”

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote

Who could resist this brave and quirky human as she delivers her Don Quixote monologue.

She clip clopped her way on her imaginary steed up the cobblestone streets of the ancient city of Toledo, Spain. We were so along for the ride!

Her sign says “unemployed”.

We hope her egg carton armour and cheeky sense of humour will shield her against the odds.

Today we saw life as it is, and not as it should be!
