Bilingual Spanish/English Book – Sid’s Adventures in Spain #25


At last the big day came when Sid had to meet up with his estate agent Frank and be accompanied to a place called the Notary. Sid had no clear idea what this was but realized it was an important step to actually getting into his house at last. Sid was astonished when Frank had casually instructed him to take twenty thousand euro cash along with him. Despite being told that this was quite normal in Spain, he found himself whispering the request to the bank cashier and cringing with embarrassment when she all but shouted in reply: “If you want twenty thousand euros you have to order the money and come here again tomorrow morning”. He thought everyone at the bank would turn round and stare, but no one seemed to bat an eyelid.

Por fin llegó el gran día, en el que Sid tenía que quedar con su agente inmobiliario Frank y ser acompañado a un lugar llamado la Notaría. Sid no tenía ninguna idea clara de qué era, pero se dio cuenta de que se trataba de un paso importante para por fin entrar en su casa. Sid se sorprendió cuando Frank le instruyó con aire de naturalidad, que se trajese veinte mil euros en efectivo. A pesar de que le dijo que era algo bastante normal en España, se encontró susurrándole a la cajera del banco y encogiéndose de vergüenza cuando ella prácticamente gritó: —Si quieres veinte mil euros tienes que pedir el dinero y volver aquí mañana por la mañana—. Pensó que todos en el banco se darían la vuelta y le mirarían fijamente, pero a nadie le pareció interesar.
