on Buenos Aires (I)

The mecca of tango. The city of tango. The people of tango. The fascinating city. The nation who came up with the ideea. A too short experience. A too long longing to come.

The first day there I thought I was home. I had this peculiar feeling that everybody I know is actually living next door. Friends, family, they were all naturally supposed to be just a few blocks away, yet I was an ecuator and an ocean apart from them. One understands circumstances through one's own experiences, true. However this city has an universality of it's own. The good, the bad, the ugly an the ever beautiful all come together here. It's a city of all people and I suppose that's how tango was born. The elements are all here. This place and everything in it, It is tango.

Wherever you go whatever you do everything is in the air. You can feel the mood of every esquina at any given hour of the day. And after a while you know the streets, you don't need a map, it's all so commonly there. Like home. Like a lover whom you've grown to know by heart yet you never get bored, you never want to leave nor forget.
