Factoid of the day: the name of Cicero of akin to the word for chickpea--chicharro. This weekend the on-line catalogue was down at the main branch of the library, so we snagged a bunch of escape books, travel of all kinds. This factoid is from one of the ones by Honor Tracy, sketches from Spain. She was a neighbor in the 'sixties of the Gerald Brenan household. When I unearth my old lists of reading I'll be reminded of which of his stuff, if any, I read besides the autobiographical. I can actually remember reading some of these vignettes in issues of Aunt Hilda's Holiday magazine, decades ago..
