you’re never too old to tango

Two older people dancing tango in front of a small private plane

Not too long ago a tango dancing (tanguero) friend told me that I was a tango addict because I keep a pair of tango shoes in the boot of my car. He has a point, an enthusiastic tanguero is happy – and ready – to dance anywhere they can.

That’s why I have posted this shot of Sandra and Terry Badis. While I don’t believe it represents the essence of tango at all, it does reflect the attitude of many tangueros.

I wonder if he would have so readily declared me a tango addict had he known what other dance shoes are in my car..
