    I can see why Mrs. Ampster would prefer a parallel close embrace and ocho milongueros to ochos with pivots and dissociation in these shoes ;).

    Great musicality - did you actually have that music playing there? What awesome sound system did you haul up that mountain?

    And darn, you do always consistently land on the ball of the foot.

    @ Steve, samina, Linda, fascination, sixela: Thank you guys :notworth:

    Yes, we did have the music playing. The awesome mountaintop sound system was my phone using it's own speaker placed beside the camera. Aside from the wind blowing, it was dead-quiet up on the summit, so it was enough for us that we could hear it.

    Yes, I consistently dance on the balls of my feet (regardless of backpacking boots). I just found out many years ago, that this was the best way I could dance a tango. :cool:

    I meant to comment on this last night. Sorry about the delay.

    You two are beautiful. I love the ... unpretentiousness? I guess. of the way you dance with each other. Intimate. Patient. Wise. Joyful. Fun.

    I loved the video. :-D

    iF the mountain won't go to Ampster then Ampster must go to the mountain.

    if it needs a new soundtrack Lark Ascending might be opposite...

    but i do enjoy watching it with no sound......

    Sorry about that. Do you if there's anything I can do to rectify this? :confused: My YT skills are a bit short.
