Jill and I are getting ready to have a major party this weekend at the 7th Annual Salsa Rueda Festival.
The party started last night, when we hired a few private party buses and drove all over San Francisco.
My friends, Nick and Serena, run the whole event and it is one of the biggest in the USA.
Some of the best teachers, performers and fans of Cuban music and dancing come from all over the world just to be at this festival.
Luckily, it is always on the same weekend as my birthday so I get to celebrate with loads of friends and pretend as if this is my birthday party every year.
Jill, always willing to try something new, went on the party bus for the first time last night and seemed to have a great time.
She was able to meet a lot of my friends that she had never met before, and was able to do a little salsa dancing also. It isn’t really her scheme but she’s a trooper and danced with me a few times.
Most my friends are new to her since we met only 8 days before I left for China. Since we’ve been back we’ve been working non-stop since we got back to update San Francisco Tourism Tips, she hasn’t really had a chance to meet a lot of my salsa community. That is going to change, BIG TIME, this weekend.
Since I won’t be around my immediate family on my birthday, I will be around mi familia salsa.
A wonderful way to start the party and to begin my 47 year of being alive on this little blue marble we call Earth.
