Tango en La Dourade, Toulouse

Tango en La Dourade, Toulouse, watercolor, 41x31cm." La Dourade" is a park/beach/recreation area at the side of La Garonne, the river along which Toulouse was built. During the Tango Festival 2011, a few days ago, they had a platform for tango dancing under the trees, overlooking the beautiful river where people were doing water-sports. For me, born and raised in Argentina, to hear tangos in such a combination of places, in France, and to see so many French people enjoying the music and dancing the tango, it was sometimes emotional, and all the time beautiful.
Tango en La Dourade, Toulouse, acuarela. "La Dourade" es una combinacion de parque/playa/zona de recreacion sobre La Garonne, el rio que pasa por Toulouse, France. Durante el Festival de Tango 2011 hace unos dias, habia una plataforma para bailar tango bajo los arboles, con vista al hermoso rio donde la gente estaba haciendo deportes acuaticos. Para mi, nacida y criada en Argentina, escuchar tangos en semejante combinacion de ambientes, en Francia, y ver a tantos franceses disfrutar de la musica y bailar tango, fue a veces emotivo, y siempre hermosisimo.
