gay Uruguay - Nomadic Boys

What’s the first country that comes to mind when you think of tango? We’re guessing Argentina, right?

You’d be half right. Back in the 1880s, the tango was invented by the urban lower classes in the Rio de la Plata basin, which includes both Buenos Aires and Montevideo.

As such, both Argentina and Uruguay claim equal ownership of the tango. In 2009, they made a successful joint application to have tango listed in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List.

We attended the Uruguayan LGBT Chamber of Commerce conference in September 2016, where tango was showcased. To our surprise, two extremely handsome gay Uruguay boys, Juan and Rodrigo, took to the stage and blew us away.

Carlos Melia learns Tango at El Querandi Tangueria  |  Buenos Aires, Argentina  |  Aside from being my favorite tangueria (aka. Tango House) in Buenos Aires, today, once the show was over, I took my own private lesson of Tango with one of the leading dancer of the prestigious El Querandi Tango Show. I know I know… Argentinean, Porteño and I do not have a clue on how to dance Tango, shame on me. Well that is why El Querandi Tango has came to my rescue to give me the basic steps of my native dance. > Check the Full Post and more at www.carlosmeliablog.com

EVITA Vive Show and Dinner Buenos Aires  |  Buenos Aires, Argentina  |   Whether you are a great fan of Evita, a tourist looking to learn more about her myth, passion and love or a local that either hate or love her, EVITA Vive is a good show to see both sides of an iconic international personality that has captivated the world with her charisma. In one hour and a half you will learn about the largest and most controversial female icon in Argentinean history. Located in the heart of San Telmo neighborhood on the ground floor of Moreno Boutique Hotel.
Great dancers, good multimedia and costumes, and fairly good overall show with a few moments where even I that I know the full story got lost or a bit dispersed. Food is OK, but sorry to say that the services was not up to the standards and the glamour of such a figure like Evita. I would recommend the show to those really interested in her life or to learn more about her, also you will enjoy bits of great danced tango. Now I would only suggest going for the Show Only (from USD 70 x person) option with drinks, the dinner and service were not worth it. CM
