So I just got back from Salsa en la calle in Portland. Had a great time!! Sonora Caruseles was there!! They played with so much energy it was awesome. i haven't been out dancing very much over the last six months. it was great to get back into the scene - and what a excellent way to get back into it with salsa en la calle. It was raining today - I wasn't sure if people were going to show up and dancing in the rain. But there were plenty of people there. i thought I was going to show up and dance for a little while and then take off - but i couldn't -- it was too good to leave. I danced for five hours - almost without breaks. I am totally exhausted - but feel great!! Had to share the excitement. I am hoping that the excitement will continue and I can get back into dancing on a regular basis!!!!!
