The last time I was at El Beso was on Monday, 22 June 2009. I posted the event on my blog. I mentioned one of my favourite milongueros who I called T and described how he magically weaved his way like a snake through the mass of dancers on the floor.
On my previous visits he has always been a joy to watch a larger than life characer becoming more and more eccentric as the years went by. Unfortunately he danced for the last time on 7 January 2010.
El Beso was not quite the same yesterday, something, someone was missing.
El Beso is a much emptier place without Tete.
