B-Sprout Bachata

July 26, 2010

One weekend highlight: Saturday night, when clubbing plans fell through, Ryan and I did a little online digging and came up with a one-hour, five-dollar, group bachata lesson near Lake Merritt. In a senior activity center, as we discovered on arrival. Talk about a score.

Let me just say: a lot of these elders can dance. I find it so inspiring. And many of the most optimistic, vivacious old folks I know are deeply musical people who actively dance, sing, or play instruments. So when Ryan and I learn bachata, I really feel like we’re investing in a long and happy life.

Bonus: practicing our moves while we roast a big pan of carrots, cauliflower, and b-sprouts.

    And I thought Bachata was an Italian bean dish!; ) Beautiful leaf, and Ryan sure looks happy to be cooking(must be your presence!)
