Spanish term or phrase: las ciudades son de gran extensión
Servicio bancario en Sucursales:
Para un latinoamericano, la experiencia de ir a una sucursal del Banco no es grata y además significa una gran pérdida de tiempo: las cuidades son de gran extensión, las sucursales lejanas y llenas de público, por otra parte, las sucursales bancarias solo abren al público por medio día.

¿Me ayudan con esta frase, por favor?
¡Gracias!
