Carlos Alberto Rodriguez

Carlos Alberto and I live in the same neighborhood, so I see him regularly having coffee and chatting with friends.  It’s been a while since he has gone to dance because of health problems.  I called him on his birthday, but didn’t see him to take this photo until Saturday afternoon.

The other day he was listening to the radio when his favorite vals  Corazon de oro by Francisco Canaro played.  He was alone in his room.  He took off his jacket,  held it in his embrace and danced the vals.  He said, if anyone had seen me, they’d have thought I was crazy.  How he loves dancing tango.  I hope he’ll go to Lo de Celia soon.  Another friend and I want so much to dance with him.
