We share the same nickname Pichi in the milongas (although I stopped using it four years ago).  We were introduced several years ago when Club Juvenil was the place where the milongueros danced on Saturday nights.  I danced with him in Lo de Celia where he went regularly.    

Pichi can be found on Sundays in Salon Canning with his friend Jorge Orellana, but he is no longer able to dance.  That has been the case for about two years.  We can’t imagine how painful it is for a milonguero to be listening to tango and unable to dance.
