Tango – the first milonga

I’m sure you’re not meant to go to a milonga or tango night after just a couple of lessons, but I did because a group of friends (with assorted tango skills) were going, including people from Devon. Anyway, they are, from left, David, Jon, Julie, Clive & Carol. It was a great night – a beginner lesson for 90 minutes, then lots of tango … then a quick realisation that I needed to leave so that I could get home on public transport. It was such great fun (apart from crash salsa for 20 mins or so).

When coming through Trafalgar Square this week the usual Nelsons Column was hidden with scaffolding for its cleaning, restoration and “pigeon-proofing” work. It’s due to be finished by July.
