As he walked into the airport building it was all noise and
confusion, people shouting, greeting friends and jabbering
in that unknown language which Sid felt sure he would be
able to speak in a very short time. He had been good at
French at school, and even though that was over fifty years
ago he was quietly confident. After picking out his somewhat
battered suitcase, purchased for family holidays way
back in 1957, Sid walked out into the bright sunshine and
looked around him. For the first time he realized that he was 
not appropriately dressed. He glanced down at his tweed
jacket, grey flannel trousers and brown brogues and made a
mental note to devote some time to adjusting his wardrobe
to a Mediterranean lifestyle.

Al entrar en el edificio del aeropuerto todo era ruido y
confusión, gente gritando, saludando a amigos y hablando
en ese idioma desconocido que Sid estaba seguro que en
poco tiempo sería capaz de hablar. Se le daba bien el francés
en la escuela, y aunque de eso habían pasado cincuenta
años estaba discretamente confiado. Después de coger
su maleta vieja y gastada, adquirida para las vacaciones
familiares de 1957, Sid salió hacia la luz del sol y miró a su
alrededor. Por primera vez se dio cuenta de que no estaba
vestido adecuadamente. Bajó la mirada y observó su chaqueta
de tweed, sus pantalones de franela, y sus zapatos gruesos de
cuero, y decidió dedicar un poco de tiempo para renovar su
armario adecuándolo al estilo de vida mediterráneo.
