Welcome to the blog. Yolanda! It was time that we were waiting for you here! You have made us plead on bended knee!

You should write a short ntroduction, explaining why you have arrived so late to the blog. And afterwards, you have to review what you have written, because there are many spelling mistakes and words you´ve written as they sound. You have to read carefully and correct all this. I hope you do it quickly.

If you want to go to Germany, you will have to work more!
