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,”

Late August

Its late August. Where did the time go? A moment ago it was June. As we prepare to travel to the the USA for a month or so, my thoughts focus on the experiences of living and dancing in Istanbul. Primarily, this city is a dichotomy of new and old creating a force field ofContinue reading “Late August”

Istanbul stories

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.

Dancing in Buenos Aires continues to expand as I recently counted 24 Milongas on Hoy Milonga today. They are all over the city from Palermo to Recoleta, San Telmo to San Nicholas, Villa Crespo to Flores.

Thoughts on the new year, so far…

Now at the end of January after a week of 90 plus degree heat and then another week of continual rain, the days are cooler. Still in the evening the humidity returns and air conditioning is a must to get to sleep. In my personal life what a crazy couple of weeks it has been!!!AContinue reading “Thoughts on the new year, so far…”

Muy Calor

With the city reaching a record temp of 99 and a friend visiting me from Istanbul, the need for cooler weather and maybe being on the water was necessary. As some of you might know, my photography is on Instagram (Instagram.com/ruth.offen) and maybe you are following me. Thank you! It was on Instagram that IContinue reading “Muy Calor”
