Tango Posts

Having been back in Kiev for almost a week, I probably should move on from the Argentine stuff and get back to Ukraine, but it's difficult. For one, I think I can count the number of times I've left my apartment since coming back on one hand. Sorry kids, but transistioning from 80 degrees every day to 19 degrees every day just sucks.

Anyway, for today two tango related posts. This picture was taken at the grave of tango legend Carlos Gardel in Chacarita cemetary. The sculpture of Gardel that sits on his grave was specially designed so that lit cigarettes could be placed in his hand. This guy was a Chilean tourist who was doing just that.
