Noteworthy birthday party
My friend Gustavo is not just a wonderful piano player (one of the best from Argentina) but a superb host. I love his birthday parties. He and his partner Richard bake zillions of different empanadas and roll sandwhiches on a thin Argentinian bread. His mother frosted the two spectacular birthday cakes and I am only sorry not to have taken a picture. After the cake, Gustavo played some Argentinian music (after a warmup birthday rendition by his friend Richard) Several of the people got up and did the Tango. I felt like I had front row seats at an intimate performance.
