Miracle fruit!

You'll be pleased to know that we have taken our second malaria pills today and it was not as traumatic as last week. The difference...

We dissolved one of these miracle fruit tablets in our mouths and then had some fun. The idea is that they disable the sour and bitter receptors on your tongue and so change the flavour of sour things to sweet. We ate a whole lemon and it tasted so good, like pure sugar. After this the malaria tablets were not so bad.
These would be great fun for a party. The effect lasts for about half an hour and so we also tried tomatoes (not much else left in the fridge!) . The box recommends kiwi fruit and grapefruit.

We have been practising our Spanish this week. Do you know  any Spanish?

Try and guess these animals..

La jirafa
El elefante
El leon
El canguro
El cebra
El delfin

Giraffe,elephant,lion,kangaroo,zebra,dolphin .....easy peasy!

This is a link to a fun website for learning Spanish.

This was our first blog on the iPad and it was so hard without a mouse.
