Chilling in Buenos Aires – part two

Tonight is our last one in Buenos Aires. I took a stroll this evening around Palermo SOHO and as I walked back, looking at the people sitting outside the restaurants in the plaza, walking their dogs in the park, and a local singer playing live bossa nova in the street I was already missing it. This is our first little experience living in a big city and we loved it! Our highlights in the last ten days are: completing our Spanish and photography classes, visiting one of the nicest neighborhoods: Recoleta, , witnessing our first real tango experience, and tasting the pizza at a famous local restaurant: El Cuartito.

On Wednesday evening we attended a Milonga at an underground salon called “La Catedral”. After some searching we spotted a normal random door without any sign marking it in the middle of a busy street in the city. We climbed a set of dark stairs and found ourselves in our first tango dance hall.
It was close to 10 pm and the last tango class was finishing up. We sat and ordered a bottle of wine while enjoying the music and dancers. Later a live band played as the most advanced dancers performed the art and dance known as tango! It is hard to describe the whole picture, but sitting in a huge shadowy dance room with another fifty people enjoying the sensual, intense, gorgeous music and dance was amazing!

Now to Uruguay tomorrow!!!

Enjoy the pictures!
