Misha in St. Petersburg

Michael Goro from Chicago writes from St. Petersburg:

I am going to London tomorrow. There I meet Sarah and we are coming back together on the 23rd. Russia is good, crazy as usual. I got into a swing of tango stuff unexpectedly for myself. I went to check out a local milongoa. I danced with Elvira (yes, this is really her name, not the one who is a queen of the dark though) who started a tango scene here in St. Petersburg about six years ago. She constantly brings some good dancers like Gavito and Paulo Veron. Any way she immediately booked me to do a workshop, performance with her and make an appearance on television. It was a lot of fun. She put together the hall show to the live music at a pretty small salon with some historic significance. I did four songs with her. It was nice, a very high-energy audience. Started off very formal and ended up with every body getting drunk (typical for Russia).
