Buenos Aires shows -One last night.
Buenos Aires shows -One last night. Great showsgreat audiences and more tingling tango.
Three shows at River Plate - our only three night back-to-back run - and we were three for three. Just amazing shows, with the greatest audiences you could hope for. They sang, they laughed, they cried. Not a dry seat in the house.
I had another Tango lesson from Dolores this afternoon, and at tonight's show Juan's sons came and presented us with our very own Tango shoes. We'll be unstoppable now, I tell you. We even had a spontaneous "Tango hour" in catering yesterday, much to the surprise of some of the crew wandering in for their lunch. We couldn't leave Argentina without one more night out, so headed back to "Almagro", the first of the two Tango clubs. Being after a show and all, we didn't get there till after 2am, but this was not a problem. In fact, an hour and a half after us, Paul McGuinness arrived with some of the management team and half the band. This was clearly not going to be an early night, but this place stays open till dawn anyway. What a great week we've had here. I had a feeling it was going to be a special one, but certainly I had no idea of the direction it would take. Tango in the church hall, anyone?
