Crazy gringo

Last Monday I danced with an Australian girl in a group class. I felt we had a pretty good connection and we chatted after class. She said she felt I had been holding back. She was right. Well not any more.

I have a couple of tanguera friends who are coming out here in August. In a crazy moment last night I thought it would be fun to enter the Buenos Aires Tango World Cup in August with one of them. Jo is up for it. So I’ve signed us up. No more holding back. I will give everything.

Crazy? Absolutely! But why not?

    Being crazy is what life is about. Good on you. 🙂 Anyway having ditched your job and moved to the other side of the world for six months this is a drop in the ocean.

      Thank you. Talking of oceans, I have even more crazy ideas in the pipeline. Will tell you more next time we talk.

    You made the deadline for registration. It will be an experience for you and your partner. First you have to dance in several qualifying rounds. Watch some videos and you’ll have an idea of what to expect.

    Thanks for coming to my table at Celia’s to introduce yourself. Try to arrive earlier so you can get a table in a better location for the cabeceo. I saw that you had a tanda with Reiko from Tokyo. She is another tango addict who visits at least twice a year.

      Thanks, Janis.
      Yes, we both got our confirmation emails on Monday. I’m sure it will be an experience.
