A couple more from Iguazu and tango show

My readers know I love photographing children from their native countries. With permission of course. Here’s a little cutie at the Falls in a raincoat that was much too big!

The butterflies were all over the place and beautiful.

Our dinner and tango show was wonderful, a real taste of Buenos Aires. The history of the tango dates back to the late 19th century where the tango expressed the apprehensions and anxieties of the local people about a disappearing way of life. The melancholy songs and the music of the gaucho symbolized their lives. Pablo said that when we go to Uruguay that they will claim ownership of the tango but that we should strenuously object – it is originally Argentinian.

It was a fun night with wonderful dancing, music and fun with new friends. There were 25 of us on this pre cruise adventure. We were not allowed to take pictures during the show but here is the theater and one of the dancers with a guest after the show.

    Oh Pat – how wonderful. Loved the photos from the Falls and all your commentary. Can almost see Norm with a red rose clenched in his teeth doing the Tango. Enjoy!
