Learning to salsa dance was one of my aims from my to-do list. I decided to brush up my next-to-none existent knowledge by attending
Having finally mustered the confidence to give the real thing a go, my friend Laura invited me to El Tibiri. El Tibiri is an underground bar in the Estadio neighbourhood located on the 70 close to San Juan. We entered at about 10.30 with the place being relatively empty but it didn't stay like that for long. Within three-quarters of an hour, the dancefloor was packed to the roof!
What ensued was a hot, sweaty night of being thrown around the dancefloor, limbs flailing and failing to keep up with the locals. Whilst I could be typically British and moan about the lack of fans etc. I had so much fun attempting to dance salsa that I can't complain. It was a great way to practise my Spanish and with no cover, amazing atmosphere and $3000 peso beers, what's not to love?
