I did a few things today to try and get myself settled in the country. I registered for the health service,
got myself a tax number and a bank account.
Banks are a big shock here. You pay for everything. Want to take
money out of a cash point - pay for it. Want to pay for something
in a shop using your cash card - pay for it. Want to go and see
a cashier at the bank, you guessed it, you pay for it. Bizarre!
