After eleven years living, dancing, teaching tango, and writing in Buenos Aires, I came home to L.A. in 2014, where I'm reconstructing my life.

The Three-For-One Weekend

THE THREE-FOR-ONE WEEKEND (Four if you count Nooruz, the Persian New Year!)

It was exactly four years ago this month that I moved to Buenos Aires from San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. And it was then that I first celebrated my birthday in Argentina. I invited a few friends to my tourist apartment, and ordered a cake, a pastel. When I went to pick it up, I had a meatloaf with my name written on it! No wonder the girl looked so strangely at me at the deli! In Mexico a cake is a pastel, and a torta is a sandwich! Talk about learning the hard way! But I stuck a candle in it and we all had a good laugh.

For the first time since 1916, Easter Sunday is also my birthday.

But I will never get used to Easter and my birthday falling in autumn!

TP, sure did miss you last night at the milonga to end all milongas!

But so glad YOU were there, Tina! And thanks so much for bringing Mlle Chemin du Tango.

I had so very much fun thanks to my wonderful friends.
