There is so many thoughts which are cuddling in my mind right now. So many unspoken words, fears, excitements, desires, wishes, memories, plans and dreams. It is a perfect collage of who I am at the moment nearly ready to hit the road.
I spend my last evening with Dominika who just arrived from
this morning. It is incredible
how things are. I would like her to be there right now, so we can discover more
of Baires together but she is back to Buenos Aires
full of delight memories. “The most romantic” trip of her life as she described
it. Romantic in a sense of being in love with the culture, people, Tango and
had for her to offer. Now I became the messenger with greetings and love which
need to come back where they belong. Dominika’s experience is another one which
makes me want to go even more. My head is full of Argentina stories from different sources.
I was never better prepared for any of my journays. No I wonder how everything
is going to be for me. Buenos Aires
I have not step on the
street yet but somehow I feel I know this city so well. I can smell it already.
I can see people, lights, I can feel wind and heat. I can touch walls of the
building and drink my first morning coffee with media lunas. I can imagine my
first tango in the arms of a stranger and many more to come in reality not only
in my dreams. Buenos Aires
Last year was incredible for me. I just realised that I started my recent diary with the phrase that “I am one happy being full of love, tango and dreams lacking drama and tears”. That was in June. Somehow the diary still goes with me to
and the state
of mind never changed. Buenos Aires
My bag is nearly ready and is full of many little important things.
I am taking with me my first “holly-hole” Comme il faut shoes which are still danceable and so comfi. The little feet pillows and big earrings from Kasia. She said I need to have big earrings to look more Argentinean so I believe I have no choice. Mini electric fan from Vasi Liki we will see how the new technology is working at the milongas. Chop sticks and japanease fan from Anne-Fleur just in case to keep my hair and neck in place. Camera case from Anthony to inspire my photography. Pen and a dice form Abdullah to keep the letters to Caro flying between
Aires and .
We decided to keep it the old fashioned. The ink which spilled on the counter
in the shop when I was buying it. Pink sun glasses from Nela to see the life as
it is. Witold Gombrowicz’s book “Trans Atlantic” from Dominika so I remember
how Polish writer was discovering Buenos Aires in the previous era and of
course “Happy Tango” from Johan which is waiting for me in Argentina already. These
are my Tango essentials. Dublin
New Year’s Eve on the plain is my first experience of that sort. It is a day as any other day but for me it has a special meaning. I decided to start the year lacking resolutions and making things happen this time. Following the dreams being flew away over
Atlantic and landing in January 2012 in new reality. Tango
adventure starts! I do not want to rush only take one step at the time and slow
down the time as much as I can. Festina lente, this is for you Joanna.
Pigmalion sculpt my love, Aphrodite give her lungs to breath, Galatea never
take off your dancing shoes. Viva ! Argentina
