Milongueando En Bariloche!

By Tangocherie
Milongueando en Bariloche!Ruben and I just returned from a fabulous week of nature and clean air, good food and relaxation in Patagonia.
But the first thing we did in San Carlos de Bariloche was to go to a milonga!
It's held downstairs in the Casino on Sundays, and the night we were there, there was live music from the Bariloche Tango Trio.

A glamorous atmosphere


Milongueros generally aren't that crazy about dancing to live music, because as in this case, valses are mixed with milongas and all sorts of tangos, and there were no tandas as such. Still, this group played very well--especially the violinist. A pleasure to listen to, if a bit difficult to dance to for some. The cabeceo doesn't exist there either.
We danced and had fun, and folks came up to us to ask if we were from Buenos Aires. I had a Caipirinha cocktail, whoo hoo!! (I do miss my cocktails, living in BsAs)

 We were disappointed that there were not more milongas to attend while we were in town, but at least there was this one. It's the "off season" in Bariloche, but anyway, it's not a Mecca for tango. We spent the rest of the week enjoying many of the other attractions that Patagonia has to offer. And I can't wait to go back! Not for the tango but for the natural beauty. (More about our trip coming soon.)
