    Crowds of shoppers at the Rastro market in Madrid

    ¿Decidimos comprar el bolso rojo o el rosado?

    Elena y Sara están en El Rastro de Madrid, un mercado de cosas usadas (Elena and Sara are in the Rastro Flea Market of Madrid).

    Elena: ¿Debo comprar este bolso (handbag) rojo?
    Sara: No, debes comprar el bolso rosado. Tienes una chaqueta (jacket) de color similar.
    Elena: ¿Este puesto no vende un bolso más grande? El bolso rosado es un poco pequeño.
    Sara: El puesto de bolsos usados solamente vende lo que recibe. Y los bolsos pequeños son elegantes.
    Elena: Bien, compro el bolso rosado. Los puestos (stalls) del Rastro venden las cosas a precios muy bajos.
    Sara: ¿No abres el bolso antes de comprarlo? Yo siempre abro los bolsos que compro. A veces hay objetos o incluso dinero dentro.
    Elena: Bueno, sí, las personas a veces descubren cosas interesantes en El Rastro.
    Sara: Los vendedores cumplen con la promesa de tener un poco de todo. Ahora debemos buscar el paraguas (umbrella).
    Elena: Y definitivamente abrimos el paraguas antes de comprarlo.
