Soy porteña. Well, not exactly – I am from Oklahoma. But what I am is a milonguera and my Argentina is late nights that spill into early mornings, the beauty of the tango embrace and lots and lots of Malbec. Buenos Aires is full of tango. Most tourists visiting the city only ever have access to smallest section, the part the city creates for them. The dancers in La Boca, the tango shows hawked by tour guides and hotel concierges. But Buenos Aires IS tango… there is so much more. And it’s way more complicated than it looks on stage.
http://bit.ly/tangotours Originally from the United States, Jamila came to Buenos Aires to follow her love of tango, steak and red wine (not always in that order). She loves introducing people to the secret world of tango and the complexities that make up the scene here in Buenos Aires. After two years of living a milonguera lifestyle she now feels ready to explore a different side of Buenos Aires - the daytime.
