Quique at my Tango Chamuyo in Bar Academia

I called to wish him a happy birthday today and learned the news of his passing last week.  Quique loved to dance, but his smoking habit resulted in the loss of both legs. 

Quique was so enthusiastic to learn English that he attended my tango chamuyo held on Tuesday afternoons in Bar Academia on Callao near Corrientes.  There he listened to our conversation, hoping to learn more.
