This afternoon, there was tango dancing near the pond of the city park.
Including free tango lessons by Jessica Bijvoet.
She used to live in Buenos Aires, capital of Argentine, where the tango was born about 100 years ago.
She lived close to the Buenos Aires nature reserve Costanera Sur which I visited in 1991 and wrote about in my book on going to the Antarctic.
The park of today’s dancing is not as valuable as Costanera Sur.
Still, it was a beautiful setting.
It is described in Jan Wolkers’ books.
At night, various bat species fly there over the pond.
During the dancing, I heard a ring-necked parakeet calling.
Related to, but different from, the monk parakeets of Costanera Sur and elsewhere in Buenos Aires.
Many women, and only one man, had dressed specially for the dancing.
In the streets around the park, many semi wild hens with little chicks.
