After leaving Don Diego’s, Quixote and Sancho meet up with two students and two peasants traveling the same road who invite Quixote and Sancho to a wedding in the village they are headed to. One of the students invited the knight and his squire to board with them for the night, but in keeping with knight-errantry, and against the opinion of Sancho, Quixote opts they sleep in a field.
In the morning, Quixote and Sancho head to the village where the festivities for the wedding are just beginning. Cervantes describes the abundant preparation and cooking of meats as well as extravagant entertainment with dancers and performance of poetry. But soon after, Quixote and Sancho get into a discrepancy about Sancho’s excessive talking.
