I mentioned Eduardo in a recent post and wanted to post his photo when I obtained his birthdate.  I went to have a chat this week with Tito Ortega and learned that he saw Eduardo the previous day.  I never had the opportunity to dance with Eduardo, but I recall that he danced regularly with Alicia “La Turca”.  He required an operation on his hip which resulted in an infection and then four more operations.  He has to use a cane to walk and his biggest frustration is that he is unable to dance anymore.  That has to be the worst pain imaginable for a milonguero.
