TWO YEARS AGO we decided to go to Buenos Aires to see the tango, the most exciting and seductive of dances. As we were having a drink on the night of our arrival this couple got up, the piano and accordion players took their positions, and they all gave an absolutely stunning display.

For two weeks we spent every evening and sometimes afternoons as well watching and listening to the tango, which is not just dancing but songs and music as well. It is the dance, though, that excites me most of all.
