Ernesto Jorge DeGouvea

I went out for a walk this afternoon for exercise and fresh air on this cool, but sunny, day in Buenos Aires.  I didn’t take my usual route and suddenly noticed Jorge sitting in a restaurant.  I was so happy to see him.  The last time I saw him was almost a year ago when he danced an exhibition in Obelisco Tango at the beginning of the annual Festival y Mundial de Tango.

I went inside to talk.  He had finished having a meal, so we had time for a chat.  He’s still going regularly to dance a few times a week.

I realized that I’ve known Jorge longer than any other milonguero.  I danced with him during my visit in 1997.  Many milongueros with whom I danced over the years are gone.  Jorge is still dancing and still smiling.  It was so good seeing him today.  I’m glad I had my camera in my pocket to snap these photos of him.
