Gladis and Manuel “Lolo” Garaban

She invited me to her apartment to view my filming in the milongas.  What I thought was going to be a short visit turned into a marathon of six hours.  Gladis and Lolo were together for 14 years, but never married.  She showed me her photo album of those years with Lolo.  While viewing the video in Club Bailable Juvenil in July 2000, we discovered Gladis and Lolo seated at their usual table.  Video of Gladis in Lo de Celia.
