Two to Tango

Who could go to Buenos Aires and not take in a tango show? Well, we couldn’t. But we were hoping to avoid a big Vegas style show, after all, we don’t need to see horses on stage, as one of the shows advertised. We were hoping to find an intimate, authentic “feeling,” high caliber show to enjoy. Turns out that Cafe Tortoni, a Buenos Aires institution and on the must-do tourist circuit itself (though the locals would say its a bit too touristy for its own good), has tango shows that sounded about exactly what we were looking for, so we took the plunge. We found it to be exactly what we were looking for. Great dancers, great musicians, an intimate setting, and a bit of variety all added up to a fantastic evening. Since it all looked so cool, I was busy playing photographer (Theresa says I need to tell you to click to make it bigger, but I think you all are smart enough to figure that out … and let us know how the photos work out, we’re trying something a little different).

So if you’re in BA and somewhat daunted by the myriad of shows available, Cafe Tortoni is a great bet.

  1. It’s a lot easier to navigate the photos in this gallery format, but the larger ones are scaled down from what they used to be and therefore not as fun to use as my wallpaper.

  2. I’m new to your site, so I have no comment on the photos other than to say it looks like you two are having the time of your lives. You couldn’t have picked a better time to leave the US. BTW, I really like your header.

  3. I don’t like the photos as well in this post. They are small and you have to click on each one to get them to a good size to appreciate the pics. I prefer a few really good larger ones myself. They are great pics though and definitely show how great the performance was.

  4. Yeah, the full size images are smaller than what they used to be. I liked it best when you could click on one photo and then click through a slide show of all of them. I’m guessing all this has to do with some changes WordPress made.

  5. Yeah, Gregory, that’s what both Jeff and I would like to have too. We liked the program that did that but it quit working when WordPress updated. We’re going to try to get it working again before we leave for Africa…but we have a list a mile long of things we’re trying to do before then so we’ll see what actually gets accomplished.

  6. Alright everybody, we’ve managed, after a bit of work, to introduce some nice gallery type features. Let us know what you think! Hopefully this time it’ll keep working and we won’t have to try to fix this again from Africa =).
