It was very hot today.
We couldn't go outside to play at recess.
It was too hot.
So we played Uno inside.
The card game Uno is popular in Japan.
My friends didn't know that uno is Spanish for 「一」(ichi):
Cero, uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, seis, siete, ocho, nueve, diez.
零 (rei), 一 (ichi), 二 (ni), 三 (san), 四 (shi), 五 (go), 六 (roku), 七 (shichi), 八 (hachi), 九 (ku), 十 (juu).
At lunch today, we had beef bacon yaki-niku.
Well, it's not really bacon, of course, since it's beef.
It's sliced thin, like bacon, and barbequed.
We also had leek (nira) soup, rice, milk, and ice cream.
Cold ice cream for a hot day.
There were lots of vegetables and egg in the leek soup.
I liked it all, and I was happy.
