Met advisor at the Police Station for our Residencia and NIE documents at 9am. He speeded them through for us sorting out any hiccups as we went, and by 10am we left the building documents in hand. This would normally take about 3 – 4 hours unassisted
The NIE document means that we are legally entitled to stay here and can work if we want to. All the locals that we know that do not have this have encountered problems.
The Residencia is needed to get connected re phones, mobiles or the internet.
Went to our bank and changed the address with them to the apartment.
Got the bus to Iceland where we met our landlord for bacon sandwiches and coffee.
He then took us home so we didn’t have to negotiate the hill.
Spent the afternoon resting and sorting papers.
Weather is not too hot at the moment, so no sunbathing.
Had a nice dinner in the apartment to give our legs a rest.
