Wow. In the past when traveling, you always carried a lot of cash, especially when visiting Argentina. I disliked this as it could be risky. Now sending myself money via Western Union is so simple and easy. Their storefronts are located all over the city. The exchange rate is usually the best. I just receivedContinue reading “How inflation effects daily life in Buenos Aires.”

Most expressing disbelief, but saying you are so brave for living the dream in retirement. Traveling, dancing and living as an expat in different counties. I paused to consider howContinue reading “Maybe it’s time!!!”
Oh no!!! WTF…I said,
Really I have 2 fractures in my foot and can’t dance for a minimum of 2 months. This was the news my foot doc gave me, a week before leaving Istanbul for the US. That statement changed my perspective quite bit. I am used to being an active person moving, walking daily up to 4Continue reading “Oh no!!! WTF…I said,”

I do want to share some insights about Cappadocia Tango Maraton. First offContinue reading “Another amazing weekend of tango.”
We’ve been here two months and continue our discovery of all the milongas in the city while exploring the food and nightlife that exist here. We love Tango. We live Tango. We love Tango.
