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.

British Tango Cherry

Some years ago I discovered two Bhutan monasteries named Tango and Cheri. A Bhutan monastery tour usually includes them both, a total Tango Cheri experience!

We all know that the word tango is used to sell many products, most that have nothing to do with music, dance or Argentina. It's just a sexy marketing ploy. Now I discovered there is a British soda pop with the name Tango Cherry. For expat Brits who miss their Vegemite and other delicacies, they can order from obliging websites like this one.

While I love the idea and name of Tango Cherry soda, I'm not inclined to order any. But I'd love to know if it's delicious as it should be with that name, right?

vegemite? that's a disgusting Australian habit :) You must mean marmite!!

Yes tango is a drink in the UK. The default flavour is orange. There's a famous ad campaign where a man dressed in orange lycra and with orange face paint goes around rubbing his hand against people's faces. It's supposed to represent the taste sensation you get from drinking a can of tango. (I'm not sure Ive explained that very well - but you can probably find it on YouTube :) )

Cheers, Cap'n!

Yeah, well, marmite, vegemite, treacle, and your famous bubble & squeak, can stay home as far as I'm concerned. Now if could just order a lovely lamb joint on the web, I'd be happy!
