Next Day we went to school and we went to Oceanografic of Valencia. We returned to home and at the afternoon we met with our friends (spanish and french) and we pass the evening in La Canyada.

At the weekend we met a lot with friends and we went to the beach, to Valencia and to La Eliana with friends.

Monday we went to the natural park of La albufera, but we didn't enjoy it a lot because it starts raining and we can't ride in boat to visit the lake.

Tuesday we went to school and we pass the day there, we made workshops and we play games.

Wednesday we went to valencia to watch the "mascletà" and for visit the old part of valencia.

Thursday french class returned to Carcassonne and we said "au revoir"(goodbye).
