    La Mancha is actually a real place (an entire “state” in Spain). It means “the stain,” and having been there, I can tell you that the name fits the place rather well.

      Hm. And, honestly, it’s not all that “fantastical” even in the book. I’m not responsible for the quiz; however, I just shared it. :)

    I recognized Milne, Baum, Doyle, More, Rowling, Swift, Lewis, Carroll, and Tolkien’s places. I also recognized La Mancha, Never Never Land, and Shangri-La, although I don’t remember who wrote about them.
