Last night we had the most wonderful experience. We both dressed up in the best clothes two travelers can pack, and headed out for a special evening. We were met at the door of an old building on a cobbled street near the centre of Buenos Aires, ten minutes walk from our apartment. Then we were walked downstairs to an underground hall with arched brick ceilings and walls surrounded by Tango memorabilia, including pictures of the local twenties ‘Tango Saint’ Carlos Gardel (who died in a plane crash). The hall had lots of tables with lamps looking over the stage. After a beautiful meal of carne and vino we watched Tango and clapped to the local stars of the old but strong dance style. This was the highlight of our trip, what Buenos Aires is known for.
