Oh, another point... 

Python is a little more complicated than some other languages, like Java, because Python classes (types) are themselves instances (objects) of yet another class (the so called "metaclass"). Ultimately, all classes are instances of the special metaclass called "type".

So all instances are objects, and all classes are also objects.

This is really powerful and useful, but it does sometimes make it hard to talk about things :-)
