A friend of Hugo’s told me that he moved to a new apartment only three blocks from mine, but he didn’t give the address. I rang doorbells, but couldn’t find Hugo. His phone number is still listed at his old address. I’d like to visit Hugo and see how he is doing. A stroke in November 2013 has kept him from going to the milonga.
2/15/16 Update: The milonguero who knows where Hugo lives finally showed up on Sunday at Lo de Celia. I went over to ask him for Hugo’s address and telephone. He finally was able to tell me the exact address –only ONE block from my apartment. I had a nice visit with Hugo today. He lives alone and goes out to eat at the corner restaurant. He doesn’t want to exercise as he should, so I’m going to help.
