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.

Happy Anniversary, La Milonga de los Consagrados

Everyone knows that on Saturday afternoons, Ruben and I are always to be found at Region Leonesa (Humberto Primo 1462) at the milonga where we first danced together, exactly six years ago this month. Last Saturday night was their big anniversary celebration, and in a way, it was our anniversary too.

El Region Leonesa in all it's glory, jammed-packed and happy, with the fantastic orchestra of Ernesto Franco playing on stage.

With the maestro himself.

With Gerry y Lucia, who also performed.

Irene and Man Yung from Toronto were visiting.

Our table was full of flowers: (from right) Gail, Barbara, Flo, Else, me

(Thanks to Gerry y Lucia for some of the photos.)

We had fun!

The organizer, Myriam Rosich, who, along with her brother Daniel (below) took over the milonga last year upon the death of their father, Enrique Rosich. (Enrique would be very, very proud.)

Los Dos Danys celebrated their birthdays, but also Dany Borelli, the best DJ in Buenos Aires, was inaugurated as the new DJ of Los Consagrados. Daniel Rosich, brother of Myriam, is the organizer.

Ruben y Marcela, organizers of Nuevo Chique on Tuesdays and Thursdays. (Marcela took the video above.)

Photographer Gail Miller was snap-happy.

Oh how I wish I could have celebrated this wonderful place's anniversary with you!
I will always remember the lovely time I had there!

What great pics! And a great love story (maybe some of it will rub off and I'll meet someone at our small Milonga too!)

And Irene and Man Yung were there!

These pics are making me smile a huge grin!

What a nice evening that looks like--and what a fun dance! Congratulations to you and Ruben!

(I'm fond of Los Consagrados, partly because it was where I had my first tango in Buenos Aires--and it wasn't even with Ron! They do say you never forget your first time. ;)

Can't wait to be with you both on the Saturday after I arrive...
