Our first week in Oviedo!

Our students have already spent a week in Oviedo. Everyone is fine and learning a lot (including professors). We had some games for orientation in which we got to know each other. We played “scavenger hunt” and “el ciempies” (the centipede) and managed to finish the latter right on time…

for lunch! Yes, some of us were reluctant to try new food at first, but then we started to enjoy every bite. Who says that people don’t eat fruit anymore these days?

Unfortunately we don’t like fruit all the time. That’s why we thought we deserved some ice cream.

We had time to explore the city as well. An unexpected sun helped us take advantage of the afternoon in Oviedo.  We visited the old Oviedo, the Cathedral, the market (El Fontan) and other well-known places.

And, of course, there’s no way we could miss Emily’s birthday!
