Bilingual Spanish/English eBook – Sid’s Adventures in Spain #12


An hour later, Sid emerged from the hotel equipped for
his day’s adventure. He was wearing a large straw hat to
protect his head from the sun and had of course taken the
extra precaution of covering his face with high factor sun
cream. Hanging round his neck was his camera and a pair of
binoculars, whilst his money pouch was fixed firmly around
his waist. Although he thought that reports of dishonesty in
the area were probably greatly exaggerated, it was always
better to be safe rather than sorry. He had briefly toyed with
the idea of not wearing a vest but decided this might be a little
too rash, so kept it on under his white polyester shirt with
fine vertical stripes. To get himself into a continental frame
of mind Sid had rolled up his sleeves to the elbow and had
opted to wear his only pair of light khaki Bermuda shorts,
bought in case he won a holiday competition to Benidorm
in 1972. The outfit was completed by socks reaching just
below the knee and brown leather lace up shoes. As Sid
looked down at his feet he had a feeling that these were
not entirely appropriate so he resolved to acquire a pair of
sandals as soon as possible.

Una hora más tarde Sid salió del hotel preparado para la
aventura del día. Llevaba puesto un gran sombrero de paja
para proteger su cabeza del sol y por supuesto había tomado
la precaución de cubrirse la cara de crema solar de alto factor.
Colgado de su cuello llevaba su cámara de fotos y unos
prismáticos, mientras colocaba su riñonera bien sujeta en su
cintura. Aunque pensó que los informes sobre la deshonestidad
en la zona eran probablemente muy exagerados, siempre valía
más prevenir que curar. Había considerado la posibilidad de no
llevar camiseta interior pero decidió que eso era posiblemente
un poco atrevido, así que se quedó con ella puesta debajo de
su camisa de poliéster con rayas finas en vertical. Para hacerse
más europeo Sid había remangado su camisa hasta los codos y
había elegido ponerse su único par de bermudas, compradas por
si acaso ganaba un concurso para unas vacaciones en Benidorm
en 1972. El conjunto estaba completado con unos calcetines
que le llegaban justo debajo de las rodillas y unos zapatos con
cordones de cuero marrón. Cuando Sid se miró a los pies tuvo
la sensación de que no eran totalmente apropiados así que se
decidió comprar unas sandalias lo antes posible.

An hour later, Sid emerged from the hotel equipped for his
day’s adventure.
