They did warn us 
Every time we visit the police station in Carabanchel they give us an inside view on their well organized archive. 😀
It makes us smile every time, starting off our appointment well.
And this time we were really happy, because at last we have our NIE. Yeah!
I expected a card – it’s just a number on a piece of cheap paper. Making us still wonder if this bureaucratic process can’t be handled another way. But never mind now. We have the number.
We went straight to a bank to open an account. This process is going a lot quicker, because all the paperwork will be ready tomorrow. Meaning I can have a phone contract tomorrow.
Happy, happy, happy.
