An orange fish on dry land: Darwin Watterson's easiest description about ‘The Amazing World of Gumball.’ Walking, smiling, and gullible, the cartoon character, Darwin, moves through his colourful world. About 200 years ago, a different Darwin wrote about his own world trip. Swimming in information, he published paradigmatic work and evolved into one of the best-known researchers of the 19th century. The University of Leiden even awarded him an honorary doctorate. However, if you're looking for evidence of his presence in the city, you're fishing in a dry lake. Leiden was not selected as a port during Darwin's world trip.
