Festival de Tango Nuevo de Montreal
This weekend was interesting. I went up to Vancouver to have some good times with a friend who was attending a seminar up there and while we were upstairs eating grapes and watching South Park on a lap top screen…my car was being broken into! Yup, glass smashed, iPod stolen, car ransacked. My companion remarked on my zen like attitude towards the whole thing and I was like ‘Eh, it’s just stuff. No one died.’
We then proceded to get completely lost trying to look for the border (‘Excuse me, where is AMERICA?!’) and I had a massive headache bordering on a migraine.
However, through all of this…we realized that we were both cool as cucumbers. It’s a somewhat rare instance where travel buddies (especially on a first trip together) find themselves in non-freak-out mode when bad things happen. We decided we’re good road trip buddies.
So where to next?
Well, it’s not really a road trip but I’ve always wanted to go to Montreal. We decided to think about that option. Well, imagine my delight when I did a Google search for ‘Tango Nuevo clothes’ (my wardrobe is in serious need of updating) and I find a site dedicated to the Montreal Nuevo Tango Festival! It’s in late May, 2008 and now I have a reason to bust my rear.
New goal: go to Montreal and amaze the pants off Canada with my dancing prowess.
I think I’ve been lacking a dancing goal which has led to my recent bout of apathy within the tango community. This gives me a reason to push myself!
