Tango Concluder

They witty and self-deprecating blogger known only as "Pablo" had announced the end to his "Tango Beginner" online journal. Tango: my life as a not-so-good leader

I will miss Pablo's dry humor, although I admit that I was starting to feel somewhat impatient with his "still not getting it" persona.

As he says:

Well it had to end one day...One reason is a technical one: blogger.com tm forces me to "upgrade" if I want to keep posting.But the main reason is simpler: after four years I don't qualify any more as a beginner. Today I'm just another leader, rather worse than the average.

I hope he starts another blog - one that gives more anecdotes from classes at Naveira's or Zotto's. My favorite story was the one where, on being asked by Lorena "who taught you this boleo," Pablo's dance partner, an assistant at the studio, outs him as "taking classes from Naveira".
