It has been a long journey in a short distance- there was no way to go as crow flies, as Bielarus demands visa, so we had to make it around via Poland. What can a tanguero do to dance tango in an exotic place....
Presidencial Palace is one of the finest buildings in Lviv, and needless to say, we felt honoured to dance in front of government and church ( sic!) authorities and different VIPs. But mostly we were flattered by the presence of the Embassador of Argentina who flew here directly from Kiev!
Very fine historical cabinet as our changing room- so fine that the chairs are not allowed to be used as chairs ( ribbons from side to side) , therefore maestro had to sit on the floor to put his shoes on....
I had a maid to help me with change of dresses.
But try to dance tango on this cobble stones! Dura vida de tanguero, as Victor repeats.
Lovely farewell dinner was an invitation of Susana, translator-interpretor ( of, for example former Arg president Menem) and a professor at the Lviv University now. As our day schedule was so extensive our dinner fell on Argentinean time- 11 pm. Impossible for the Europeans! We were waved good bye from their balcony as we parted to get our 4 hour sleep before hitting the road again..
We left Lviv making a visible connection ARGENTINA-UKRAINE.
