Download the eBook here for just €5.95.

Sid climbed into a taxi, gave the address of a hotel he had
been recommended to spend his first few nights in Spain
and sat back to view the scenery. There was a delightful
informality about everything he saw around him, so alien
to someone who had spent all his life in a village in the
Yorkshire dales. Sid was used to being able to identify all
the cars in his street and know where each one would be
parked every night. There was never any need for anyone
to sound a horn. Here there were people, cars, taxis and a
terrible racket everywhere and Sid found himself clutching
the edge of his car seat as his taxi shot off at an incredible
speed. “My goodness” thought Sid. “I think this new life of
mine is going to be full of surprises!”

Sid se subió a un taxi, entregó la dirección de un hotel
que le habían recomendado que pasase sus primeras noches
en España y empezó a observar el paisaje. Había una
informalidad encantadora en todo lo que veía a su alrededor,
tan extraño para alguien que había vivido toda su vida en un
pueblo de los valles de Yorkshire. Sid estaba acostumbrado a
saber identificar todos los coches de su calle y donde estarían
aparcados cada noche. Nunca había una razón por la que
pitar el claxon. Aquí había personas, coches, taxis y un ruido
estruendoso por todas partes, y Sid se encontró aferrándose al
asiento de aquel taxi cuando se fue disparado a una velocidad
increíble. “¡Dios mío!” pensó Sid. “¡Creo que mi vida nueva
va a estar llena de sorpresas!”.

For the first time he realized that he was not appropriately dressed.

Por primera vez se dio cuenta de que no estaba vestido
adecuadamente.
