It started on Wednesday, just after our arrival. We could not refuse to give a performance in the BEST, MOST BEAUTIFUL MILONGA IN MALMÖ, a fresh new one, in ' Club Carlitos'. A milonga like that has never existed in Malmö, and apart from that it is run by our very talented and beautiful student and friend, Alexandra( she deserves a separate chapter in the blog with photos included!).
Here we go: Three Graces. You guess Who is Who on this photo. Merely CELEBRITIES and VIPS of tango. The three women who made that night turn round. I say it!
The milonga was full of surprises and unexpected encounters. We met our friend Helen, la Vikinga, whom we know from Buenos Aires ( organiser of a milonga Bien Pulenta). We have immediately arranged for a more intimate reunion around a Swedish barbecue ( the sun was ordered as well) the following Sunday.Here goes Victor with three favourite GRINGAS!
Alexandra's milonga was also frequented by tangueros from other towns. Helsinborg was represented by Tangorama president, Jörgen ( read about Jörgen as a protagonist of our Swedish origins in Piteå-Haparanda chapter by Aisha)
Jörgen got so fascinated by volcadas in our show that he immediately asked for a private lesson ( to be executed on Monday) He also got a tanda with me, as usual.
After milonga we walked back to our new house: just in the heart of the town, Langgardsgatan, a very elegant apartment with the phantom of Leif, in Spain that moment.
The good thing is that Leif has always wine provisions and it was nice to have a bottle of wine to finalize that lovely night. In the morning we were enjoying the views from the apartment. This does not seem to be a town at all...
On Thursday and Friday we were taken to Kristanstad ( I like to practise the pronunciation in Swedish of this name). The weather was perfectly Argentinean ( or, Swedish summer which fell on Thursday and Friday this year ) and we have enjoyed entertaining non-tango crowds from the stage in LILLA TORG. Tango was a part of Kristianstad Days.
We have done a good team work with Rolf and Inger, the promoters of tango in Trelleborg-Kristanstad. We have therefore deserved a good dinner.! But we had to wait to be taken to Beddingestrand to enjoy it, as it was a part of next point in the programme...
Rolf spruced up a real tango look: very elegant suit, a hat and a red touch ( a tie) matching a red corset and a hat of Inger. No wonder he has this feline caminata in tango....
