More Sweden

Hey, so I wanted to put up just a couple more pictures and tell you one important thing we forgot.

First, here's a picture of the whole band with Ibi and Marina from the Salsa Akademien. This was taken right before we went to the airport to go back to our "real lives". Only Valik wasn't there, we almost left without him. Still wondering what he was doing...

But, the other great thing is that the first night that we arrived, Chris and the other lovely organizers got us into a concert of Orquesta Aragon (pictured here)! It was really amazing. They were celebrating their SEVENTIETH anniversary as a band. Isn't that insane? This is where you know it's at, when there are a bunch of older guys still singing and playing together, with as much passion as always, with incredible technique, and the audience is going nuts for them!

Here is the bassist from Aragon with our bassist, and the singer with one of our singers. Ilya and I had to leave early, but the rest of the band stayed and chatted with them, and I hear they were awesome, very friendly, very interesting and interested, and a pleasure to meet. Thanks, Aragon, for a great night!!!
