Bilingual Spanish/English Book – Sid’s Adventures in Spain #16


“Back home”, thought Sid. He repeated the words to
himself again: “Back home.” He had made the decision that
this alien and chaotic place would be his home from now on,
but he wondered how long it would take for him to really feel
at ease. He was gazing out at the blue sea, glinting between
picture-book palm trees and shining white balustrades when
an elegant Spanish lady crossed his path. For some reason
he suddenly remembered his dear sister Mary who would
be waiting anxiously to hear from him. “How could I be so
selfish!” he thought, and he decided to go in search of a shop
that would sell some postcard images of his amazing new
place of residence.

“De casa”. Había tomado la decisión de que este lugar
caótico y ajeno sería su hogar de ahora en adelante, pero se
preguntó cuánto tiempo tardaría en sentirse cómodo. Estaba
mirando el mar azul, destellante entre palmeras de dibujo y
blancas y brillantes balaustradas, cuando una elegante mujer
española se cruzó en su camino. Por alguna razón se acordó
de repente de su querida hermana Mary quien estaría ansiosa
por saber algo de él. “¡Cómo puedo ser tan egoísta!” pensó,
y decidió ir en busca de una tienda que vendiese postales
con imágenes de su increíble nuevo lugar de residencia.

It was as though the volume was turned up too high, with one noise
competing with another to be heard.

Era como si hubiesen subido el volumen demasiado, con un sonido
compitiendo con otro para ser oído.
