Que bueno son los alfajorcitos. Muy delicioso. Room 13 made these special treats, to learn more about Argentina, they are tasty. When I tasted it, I almost dribbled.

Alfajorcitos are made out of, biscuits, coconuts, and dulce de leche. To make Dulce de leche you have to get condensed milk, leave it in the can with the lid on and put it in boiling water for 3 hours, when its done you have to cool it down for another 3 hours when its cooled down, you put it on the biscuits and roll it in shredded coconuts..

The Alfajorcitos tasted delicious, it was so nice that I wanted two of them, but sadly we all only got one. The biscuit crunchy, and the dulce de leche made it smooth and sticky, the coconut made it even better, but I didn't get lots of it on the sides when we rolled them. I want to make them again some day.

They are one of the best snacks I've ever tasted before. It was like eating a bunch of lollies.

Aussie Rules

Every Thursday, we learn some skills that you could use in Aussie Rules. We are taught by two professional AFL players, their names are Megan, and Allysa. Waiting to start, they told us the instructions.

Last weeks warm up game we played was called bumper jumper. In bumper jumper you have to jump on one leg, and hit your partner with your arms on your side, if their other leg goes on the ground they have to swap to their other leg, and their partner gets a point.

After that warm up game, we had another warm up game, we had to stay with the same partner and take turns. We had to run with the ball and bounce it at the same time. The first time we did it we walked. The second time we went, we had to bend down on one knee and bounce the ball. But the third time we ran, it was kind of easy.

Finally we played a game, it was called Kick ball, it is like baseball except we used an AFL ball. Before we got to play, one person from each team had to play rock, paper, scissors, to see which team ether kicked or fielded. My team fielded fist. When the other team kicked the ball, we had to catch it, and hand pass it back to Megan, then your team will get the point. Then it was our turn to kick. I scored 3 points, but the other team won in the end.

I can't wait till this Thursday, the thing I like about Aussie Rules is playing the games. I hope this weeks game and warm ups are cool too.
