Buenos Aires The Photos

I thought I would take an oportunity to publish a few photos and videos that were kindly taken by Jantango in Buenos Aires, that she gave me to bring home.       

The first two were on a Saturday night when we went to Confiteria Ideal and danced to Orquesta Gente de Tango.  The full story of our day is here The company makes it  You can also see Roger and Mirta dancing at the same time as us, but unfortunately not Janis, as she had the camera.     

The second two are us dancing at Club Fulgor, our favourite Club de Barrio. It was a stormy night and very wet, so very few people turned out, except a group of five mad extanjeros (Viv and I, Jantango Roger and Mirta, OK Mirta is not an extanjera, but she was with us). Roberto Orlando did not like us being filmed in the club and stopped Jantango on the first video but later relented and allowed her to film the second time. The full story of the day is here Lluvia       

The next video is really Carlos Anzuate and Chiche but if you watch carefully you can see we muscled in there.  It was the day after his birthday this time, but he was great company all the same. Again you can read the full story here More Rain I have included a photo of us from that night that Janis took.     


This is us at Glorias Argentinas, guests of Carlos Anzuate.

We had a sort of impromptu lesson in Jantangos apartment, and she filmed us dancing on her wooden floor. I have to mention again the wonderful food that Adolfo cooked for us. If we look sluggish it is because we ate far too much.  Again full story is here Aniversario     

We met up with Janis and went to my favourite local cafe for a coffee. Janis ordered a Submarino, something I had never heard of, it is just hot milk and chocolate that you submerge in the milk and it melts. At our local cafe they do it a bit special, the chocolate is in the shape of spoons as you can see in the photo. Full story of the day is at Catching Up       

This is us in the cafe near our apartment, With the chocolate spoons
