The Argentine Tango


Exciting, romantic, passionate, sensual, seductive… The Argentine Tango.

The Argentine Tango was born more than a hundred years ago in Buenos Aires and Montevideo. Poor immigrants made music and music traditions from Italy, Spain and Eastern Europe mingled with native South American music. Originating in the working-class neighbourhoods and slums, tango was increasingly welcomed by the well-off classes. But the real popularity of tango could only arise when a tour of Europe was organized for a few orchestras and dancers. Tango became hugely popular in many European capitals in the years 1915-1920. From the tango as it sounded at that time and as it was danced the ballroom-tango was born, the tango that is now danced in the dance schools.

CAR Bangui

Bangui Plage, a place to be!


Travelling in Central Africa is not for everyone. Days pass without electricity, without cooling, without comfort. For me personally, as an avid adventurer, Central Africa is a true paradise.Bangui is the capital of the unknown ” Central Africanrepublic“. Upon arrival at the airport, you will be ambushed by handy foefelaars who will immediately try to guide you to a taxi or other vehicle. Keep calm, take everything with a grain of salt and leave for Ledger palace hotel. A large-scale hotel, but a real pleasure to stay in the hustle and bustle of the city. The hotel has a very good service, beautiful pool (only of the city) internet and other western comforts.
