This afternoon was our final tango lesson with Cristian and to be honest we’re both a little disappointed, disappointed that we didn’t meet sooner as we’ve thoroughly enjoyed this week and it’s bene great to pick up some basic steps of tango – we feel that we’ve progressed well, we certainly didn’t think that we’d be able to dance for a whole two minutes.
What we’ve learnt will hold us in good stead when we get back to London and its all thanks to our teacher Cristian, he’s been excellent and we highly recommend him. We’re hoping to attend a Milonga this evening – our second, only this time we’re aiming to throw some ‘shapes’ on the dance floor!

Shelley & Cristian
Cristian & Craig
We’ve now completed day four of our Tango lessons and we’re really enjoying it though at the same time gutted we didn’t get to meet Cristian earlier – he’s a fantastic teacher and though it’s only been four days we both feel that we’ve come on leaps and bounds, we’re hooked – Shelley has already bought herself some hand-made tango shoes from Comme il Faut and she’s apparently going back tomorrow to buy some more!
Tomorrow is our final day and following our lesson the three of us will be going for lunch to celebrate the week.
We’re now busy trying to find a teacher in Lima…
(We’re hoping to upload a video of our dancing tommorow, you’ve been warned!)

This evening Shelley and I attended our first Tango lesson here in Buenos Aires – oh how we wish we’d gone sooner! We’ve found a great teacher, literally five minutes walk/one block from our apartment! We’ve just come back and we’re buzzing – we’re here til Saturday and planning to cram as much tango in as possible…
Very good feedback re our dancing and didn’t feel like he was bullshitting us – here we come Brucy!
