Bilingual Spanish/English Book – Sid’s Adventures in Spain #29


At last they were ushered into a plush office and told where to sit. Sid felt completely out of his depth as torrents of Spanish flowed over his head, papers were passed around and the brown envelope disappeared across the table. His passport was taken away and given back again and from time to time he heard his name mispronounced. He had a strange feeling of distance and at one point thought he might faint. When Sid finally made it back onto the street he declined Frank’s kind offer of a celebratory drink and staggered back to his hotel.

Por fin fueron llevados a un despacho lujoso y les dijeron donde sentarse. Sid se sintió completamente perdido mientras torrentes de español fluían por encima de su cabeza, se pasaron papeles y el sobre marrón desapareció de un lado a otro de la mesa. Se llevaron su pasaporte y luego se lo devolvieron, y de cuando en cuando escuchaba su nombre mal pronunciado. Tenía una extraña sensación de distancia y por un momento pensó que se desmayaría. Cuando Sid finalmente llegó a la calle, rechazó la oferta amable de Frank de ir a celebrarlo tomando algo y se fue tambaleándose de vuelta a su hotel.
