We remedied our disappointment with ice cream from Volta down the street.
On Saturday we tried La Glorieta again. The milonga is located in a huge gazebo in the Barrancas de Belgrano park. Something magical about approaching a park and hearing tango music inviting you to dance.
The location is lovely, and the idea of dancing in a gazebo on a spring-like winter evening makes my heart jump. But this was definitely a place that I was only dancing with my sweetheart. Not many leaders in the crowd were even attempting to keep a line of dance. The floor was chaotic, and I felt like we were playing bumper cars. Poor Matthew had the difficult job of navigating the tempest. We danced a few tandas and then watched for awhile.
Watching was better. Although the floor craft was a bit scary, the atmosphere was fun and casual. The music was classic. People watching was amusing. We ended the night with our traditional trip to Volta.
