New apartment
I returned to Cordoba just in time to make the big move into a bigger apartment on Velez Sarfield Blvd. facing the Velez Sarfield Plaza. The apartment is about 5 blocks from the old one in a brand new building. We were one of the firsts to move in so we suffered a few set backs with the building including some problem with water pipes which resulted in huge holes in the walls, no gas for about a week, and the construction and repair noise from the other units as they were being worked on. Other than that the move was for the better.

I did manage to go out dancing a couple of times. The first time was at a club called Living 4, where we got in free for a concert of a guy who is relatively popular here. I did most of the dancing before and after the show and during the show stayed outside because of all the cigarette smoke.
But I had a great time getting out all that dancing that had been building up inside. A few weeks later I went again with a friend who finally took me salsa dancing, but it was kind of lame because everyone was really into their partners and there were a lot of people sitting down.

Near the end of my stay in Cordoba I lost all desire to stay here for a long period of time as I had previously been considering. The city just did not really offer what I was looking for. But now that I am back in Buenos Aires I am not ready to leave.

I didn’t waste any time getting back to dancing. My first night back I headed to my ol’ tango school, Carlos Copello’s. Within the next couple of nights I found a place to learn and dance Zouk, which is Brazilian partner dance, and another one I cannot remember the name of.
So I found a place to stay temporarily while I look for another and a job so that I can stay here and learn these dances. Then I will come back restart my career and teach you all how to dance.

I hope you are excited.

I have reunited with the few friends that are still here and I am making new ones everyday. I recently met a Chinese Canadian currently going to film school in Hollywood who came here for his spring break to solidify his tango skills named Mung. With him I managed to get a nearly complete education on the who’s who of Argentine tango and went to a few Milongas, one of which had all of the who’s who of the tango dancing world. It also happened to be the annual meeting of the Congress of Argentine Tango, thus people from all over the world were here to get lessons from the big wigs. It was great really. I had a good time and I finally got to dance and put all of the steps I had been learning, and figure out those that I did not have down just yet.

So I continue studying. Nos vemos.
