Its your last week in Oviedo. Hopefully you have learned something, had some good times, and of course improved your Spanish skills. For the final entry you need to read your first entry (the one you wrote before arriving in Oviedo) and then think about your time in Spain. Write around 200 words (more if you would like) reflecting about what you have learned, seen, done, and enjoyed.
Your final entry should represent your best written Spanish. You can and should also go back and proof read all your previous entries. You will have until Thursday night to write your final entry and proof read and edit the other entries.
Don't forget to post one more photo with description.
Make some comments on some photos and entries. (At least on one photo and one entry)

your first blog entry in Spain you need to tell about an experience that you
have had here in Spain. It can be an adventure you have had. It can be a funny,
happy, embarrassing, etc. It should be at least 150-200 words (you can write

to have looked through several of the pictures and commented (in Spanish) on at
least two of them. You also need to comment on one blog entry. Try to comment
on pictures and entries that don't already have a lot of comments and try not
to send comments to the same people all the time.
