A Day in The Life

Tonite I saw Denise at the milonga–she is from Portlalnd–here for 2 yrs-
is 9 months into it–got an apt leased for the 2 yrs. We’ll have lunch Friday.
Today I gave a party for Yvonne-(she helped)-her 50th! She’s from Venezuela and never had a b-day party–so this was special-
Got roasted chicken–bread–we made salads–bought a cheesecake—wine and beer -all nice–
3 men-4 women-dancing to end the event here on the Lunallena dance floor–the 2 ladys who don’t dance normally were thrilled–had a ball—
After everyone left and I was cleaning up–one guy-Kurt from Hamburg lingered and continued to play
tunes I hadn’t heard–unusual stuff for milongas–and we danced and danced and danced–nuevo tango–
so much fun–I got v. tired while Yvone was napping–
But I woker her at 7:30ish/8–and we had a bite and went to the milonga–Viva La Peppa–my friend Chino organizes with Pepa who I also know–I only danced with CHino at end of evening-love that boy!
But the exhibition that night was mind blowing–4 women-partnering one another–four diff dances-all quite amazing–one a comedy!  A hoot!  Then as evening ended I saw Bruno –another teacher/friend who is like a bro to Chino–this was a huge hugging reunion–I was so happy to see him–and being a Latin man he knows what to say: “First-I want to say “sorry”—I sent him many messages in past 2 yrs and he’s not been very faithful in responding–BUT we are having lunch this week and I’ll hear why.–big back story I am sure. Then he says: “You look great–younger!” See!!!?
Then I also saw Nico–Nicolas Godoy–just briefly–he was the one I went to dance the benefit with three yrs ago.
It was nearly 3am by this time so we popped over to La Veruta–in a cab–it’s free after 3am-so this is a popular thing to do here— Yvonne met a friend and danced–and I led her in one milonga tanda–it was fun.  Now home in ur fancy suite–which we get for 1 extra nite because owner offered as a b-day present for Yvonne-4:30am-Do hope I sleep til noon.


About tangobunny

Pastor Bunny went on sabbatical leave to Argentina July 28-November 4, 2010, funded by a pastoral renewal grant from the Lily Foundation. It was her second visit to AR. Since then she's been back three more times and toured the country. She loves the Argentine people as much as the tango and calls Argentina her other home.
