Like a kid in a candy store

There are 128 milongas each week on the Caserón Porteño tango map. That’s between 10 and 27 milongas each day. Other listings are available and not all milongas are listed. Punto Tango lists nearly 200 group classes each week, the print edition of el tangauta lists about 500 group classes each week. There are countless teachers offering private lessons. And I’m only here for another 5 months!

There are limits to how many classes, practicas and milongas it is possible to fit into 1 day, or 1 week, or 1 month. With so many possibilities and so little time I might never become a regular at any of them. I’m not going to try every one of those practicas or milongas. Some I can rule out for location, or timing, or type, or music. But even so, it’s going to take a while to try the ones I want to and decide which ones work best for me.

It really is like being a kid in a candy store. My candy selections milongas for the last few days were Entre tango y tango at Centro Región Leonesa, and La Viruta at Club Armenia on Friday night, Club Gricel on Sunday night, and Confiteria La Ideal on Monday evening. There are a few new photos on Flickr. I’ve created some sets so you can jump straight to the milongas if you prefer.
