Mario Hector Camartino

I told Mario that I was going to post his photo on his birthday.  He gave me his card so I could send it to his grandson.  Last Sunday he brought photos to show me and all the certificates he received for participation in the tango championships.  His mother dressed him in a suit when he was about five or six years old — that’s when he started learning to dance.  He said he doesn’t admit his age to anyone, but I told him he should brag about it.  I thought his surname was Martino from the videos, but it’s Camartino.  The name isn’t important, he’s still amazing on the dance floor.
