Il ne me parlait pas de Guadix, mais des trois orangers qui, près de Guadix, bordent un champ : " Méfie-toi d'eux, marque-les sur ta carte... " Et les trois orangers y tenaient désormais plus de place que la Sierra Nevada. Il ne me parlait pas de Lorca, mais d'une simple ferme près de Lorca. D'une ferme vivante. Et de son fermier.

But I said, as it happened, I was a little grain of dust gifted with autonomous movement and who didn't therefore need a broom. I could go out by myself."
