How many of you speak Spanish on a daily basis to Argentines and attend milongas where all the dancers are Argentine?
absorbing the culture, codigos, and customs of the milongas?
... and that by your own assessment of those milongas ...
..most dancers in the milongas are anonymous even among those who share a table. They leave their personal lives at the door of the milonga. Names are not important in the context of the milonga. Many have danced together for years without knowing one another’s names. And it doesn’t matter.
So are you saying that the experience can be distilled to impressing a taxi driver that you can recognise which orchestra is playing on the radio, and that conversational Spanish is the essence of the dance?
I have to admit (I'm not trying to be hostile) that I just don't get it at all. Your own preferences reject about 90% of what modern BsAs and its tango scene represents. Around a week ago you were asking rhetorically whether you would find any continuing attraction to attending milongas for much longer, yourself, because the things that you value seemed to be in decline. It's not much of an advert for the place, its culture, codigos and customs, to be honest.
And I know it's a language thing, but broil? There's only one country in the world that broils anything, and it's not Argentina!
