Argentina : August 10 - 23 : Tigre

19. August

Tigre, near Buenos Aires



In BA we met up with lovely friends (and passionate tango dancers), Amy and Santiago. Amy grew up with Alex and has been living in BA for over 2 years. (As of February 2008, Santiago is actuallly the NEW tango instructor at Alex's mom's dance studio in Pacific Grove!!) They took us to a 2:00AM show of one of the most amazing tango dancers in the city on a Wednesday night. (You think, do they ever have to work in BA or just dance?).

A few days later, they took us to Tigre and the surrounding areas (incl. a visit to Santiago's parents). Here is a sample of all the good information we got from them.

They inspired us to follow suit...but somehow in winter clothes and cargo pants, we did not seem to do the dance justice. But we'll let you be the judge of that.
