We got together to learn and practice la Rueda de Casino. It's a type of salsa that is danced in a circle by two or more couples, with people changing partners constantly. How one changes from one partner to the next is decided by the dance leader, who calls out the name of the next move. Some of the moves are quite simple; others are more involved; and still others are just plain silly. The names of all the moves are in Spanish, so many of them don't make much sense to me. Still, it's not too hard to remember a move after it has been called out a few times. It's a lot of fun. During a break in the dancing we sat outside on Inger's balcony. In the photo are Inger, me, Linda, Elias, and Johan.
