What Rock Have I Been Under?

Okay, just one tango post because I can't believe I haven't seen this couple before and now this woman is my new tango goddess/heroine.

Nuit and Ms. Tango Hours are out at a wine bar and I'm here on the bed with a tummyache, looking at youtube videos and feeling poorly. (Gee, could it have been the gnocchi drowning in butter, followed by a hot chocolate topped with whipped cream?!)

Now I am going to try to apologize to my poor tummy and try to imprint this woman's every move into my cells. I am in awe of her magical feet.

Oh, I love them! Michelle is unbelievable. So musical, so full of life.
They will be in San Francisco soon! Cannot wait.

When?! Where?! Oooohhh!

Frances, are you in SF, too? You must be...do I know you?! Where do you dance?

Oh! I could cry! So lovely.

Why have I never seen this couple before? I'm now going to spend the rest of the afternoon YouTube stalking them.

Precise, unhurried - I do like the little twinkle at 01:45!

According to tangomango.com, Murat and Michelles visit is scheduled for November, 16-18.

I don't believe we formally met. But I always say Hi to all the nice ladies :)

My favorite tango venue in SF is El Valenciano. I was sorry to read that you didn't have a good time there (I wasn't there that night). Perhaps it was just a fluke? happens to all of us.

Dear Frances,

Thank you for the information. I will be sure to catch them in November! And if I don't see you at El V, perhaps we can meet each other at another milonga?


I hope Michelle and Murat come to your hometown as well. Please let us know what other videos you find.

Ms. Wellspring and Ms. Eleanor,

I agree entirely!

Sure, Tangobaby, will be glad to. I am relatively new to the scene, and getting acquainted with the ladies followers as well as the leaders (of both sexes :)). How marvelous.

Hi Frances,

Then we shall have a date sometime. You have my email...keep me posted on your whereabouts and I'll be sure to wear a white carnation in my lapel...
