So now, the show will start.
Ok, the presenter couldn't forget his French friend and now France: The presenter wanted to try something different and at first they tried to sing "La Vie en Rose" so fun, but then they danced the Can Can, haha. Did Romain dance alone? No way! The presenter joined him, haha. Now was time for South America.
Now let's go to Asia... It was the turn for Singapore! Mmm, not only they didn't have Singapore's flag, but also they didn't know what music to play... at the end the presenter started to dance something Thai, that's what Malving told me... After the Thai song they danced different things including some John Travolta movements, haha. Didn't matter, the whole audience was laughing, haha. Staying with the Asian friends, our Philippines Ambassador. I didn't know any dance from Philippines, but the presenter did.
Back to Latin America. It was turn for Puerto Rico. Mr. Puelto Lico, Francisco, would dance a salsa, but he needed a partner, mmm. Who was the chosen lady? Our sweet Nelly!!! They both dance really good! Well done, Francisco!!! After the salsa lesson it was time to "fly" to the old world: Europe and the 1st country was: Germany. Michael danced something supposed to be German (?). Anyway he had fun, and so we did. Suddenly the band started to play a kind of rythm I recognized. It was Scottish! haha. Scotland's Ambassador: Paca started to dance and did it very good! The presenter didn't expect he could dance so well, haha. Surprise!!!
Just 3 more European countries: Greece - a girl danced with the presenter, Spain - two brothers danced a bit of flamenco and then sang a song from a Spanish rocker haha, so much fun, the coreography also, haha.
As usual, the presenter left for the end the USA. Why? well, maybe because they are the biggest gang... There were 4 Americans + a Canadian, 3 of the Americans were TB's: Stacey, Shawn & Jim. Ok, which can be a traditional American song? They started with "Moonwalker", haha. But that wasn't everything. Now, let's go with YMCA! Hahaha, that was hilarious. And Jim was wearing his chullo (Peruvian hat), sweet!!!
It was late and the show was about to end. One more dance and it was over. Before the last dance I gave to Malvin his award for attending to the Lima Meet Up from so far away. He's the one who came from furthest away. Until the day before I thought Rene would win but I checked that in internet, haha. The award was as the Meet Up's tradition says: a shirt signed by all the TB's!!!
It was 3:15am and people were leaving. Would we go to sleep now? Some did it so, and others took a cab in direction to Tayta! haha
Night is young and we were full of energies...
