    Wonderfully sensitive and observant writing and incredible pictures, alive with the vibrancy of colour and the human spirit. Your journal is a real feast for the mind and the eyes.

    If you've been following along you know I'm in Buenos Aires. The birth pace of the Tango. From the brothels.

    Tonight I went to Tango show.

    OMG OMG OMG

    S.E.X. on the dance floor. Unutterably hot, sensuous, uninhibited, raw, and unashamedly brazen, while being classy at the same time.

    AMAZING

    Yes! I did really enjoy it. I've never seen live tango, real tango dances by professionals, before - only in movies, youtube, etc. And it was a very intimate setting, the dancers were no more than ten feet from us. Oh I knew it was a sexy dance, but always felt just mildly uncomfortable about it, but seeing it live completely changed that. It is so brazen, so completely uninhibited, that it becomes a thing of great beauty, and of course great sensuality. Its the same cry we hear over and over about skating performances - you have to see it live, it's different live, well for me anyway. We both loved it. Plus the musicians were great, the singer fabulous, and they played three pieces of music that were totally familiar to me because everyone has skated to them (but don't ask me to name them).

    There is a new blog post ready about the wonderful city of Buenos Aires - as usual the link in my sig line gets you there.

    Also a new post in the This Nomadic Life series about the "work" of travelling.
    http://alisonanddon.wordpress.com/20...of-travelling/

    We are on the road tomorrow - flying to Iguazu. We'll be there 4 days - hoping to catch a little of SA on Turkish TV or something, I don't think the time difference is that bad, we're only one hour ahead I think.

    I loved the photos from Buenos Aires, and I'm so glad you had a stable, interesting place from which you could plan the next few months without having to worry about checkout times.

    I've never read your blog before, that was thoroughly interesting

    Hope you had some asado while in Buenos Aires, it's about the best meat eating experience ever.
    If you hadn't, there's always gaucho style barbecue to be had in Brazil (the "souther" you get, the better it is).
    Dá-lhe, Isadora!!
    Lead me not into temptation. I can find it, and eat it, all by myself.

    Ahh....the "joys" of planning!
    It's a shame that - for many reasons - you can't be as "spontaneous" as you would like.

    Thanks Kwanfan. BA was a good place to hang for a while, and we really needed the time to get Igauzu, Uruguay and Patagonia set up. Besides, the longer we travel the more we like to take it slow.

    Hey thanks beepbeep. I'm glad you enjoyed it. We didn't have asado, but will certainly keep it in mind as we have a day back in BA after Iguazu, and another after Uruguay, plus a lot of time in Patagonia, so I'll put it on the list as something to try. We're not going to Brazil - they make it too difficult, and too expensive for Canadians (especially Canadians on the move) to get visas.

    It would be wonderful to be completely spontaneous, and I hope we become more so, but we also love the peace of mind of arriving in a place knowing we have a well recommended hotel room waiting for us, and a way to get there. We'll see what evolves as we continue our travels through South America. In the meantime I'm hoping for fast enough internet speed to watch SA men and dance tonight

    Oh thanks so much, that's so sweet of you. I'm getting to see some now from the vid thread - enjoying the best skates from British Eurosport. Sometimes it buffers, sometimes it's good. Saw C&L's SD which I think is lovely and really suits them and Jason Brown's SP Who did that extraordinary choreo
