    That was what I was hinting at :lol: asking Boriken if he is Puerto Rican is like asking a thirsty man whether he would like some water :wink: On a serious note, it is amazing to see someone (a group of people, in fact) so passionate about their island/where they were born. :D

    The indigenous name of the island of Puerto Rico is Borinquen/Boriken/Borinken. In turn Puerto Ricans are also referred to as Borinqueños/Boricuas/Boriquas/Borinkenos/Borikenos. There are two words that give away a rican's nationality without the need to ask. They are wepa, and fo, like reading the first 2 letters of the word fungus, and enlongating the fu. Which means, stink. hehe

    Hmmm, soon I hope, we have planned Spain next year, then egypt, but we are open for a third location although a debate over Australia and Peru has erupted as of a late. Might just have to put bucharest on the map, and learn on1 as well. I really, really, stink on1.

    Well, it wasn't a Salsa scene (sorry! :wink: ), but when I went to my first Salsa Workshop, it was run by a WCS club here in Indy (the R.E.B.E.L.S.), and everyone there was really nice and friendly to me! =^__^= It was very cool. I'm looking forward to the dance they're having on the 20th at my studio. I get to learn WCS! :D

    So, yeah, it was really nice, and there was no pressure to perform well or not at all. (=^_^=;;) That made it really nice for me, since I was the youngest person there... Probably by at least 20 years or so... :shock: 8) But it was still great.

    Deal, I know I'll be here all this year, most likely next, and perhaps the following. :D Didn't you mention, you'll be here in NY this year?

    How is sun over there SD? Cause Orlando is sounding quite good on the freezing A/C here at work.

    Boriken -- I was talking with Tim (TJ) last night and he said you dance on 2! *HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM!* LOL! I'm an on1 dancer -- how will we ever manage?

    Mellody :roll: if you don't manage to do any On2 classes before going to NY, as long as you keep moving your feet, you will be fine. :wink: Boriken is a good pilot :lol:

    Thanks yous verys muchs Pacion, even if we hit some speed bumps here and there, it had nothing to do with me, but you have the on2 thing pretty pat down. Even if you only have danced it about 10 times.

    Mellody, my on1 is awesome!!!! Ask Pacion how good me is on1! lol :banana:

    :shock: Don't you love it when someone puts you on the spot like that :oops: :lol: What ever happens, air tubulence or otherwise, Boriken is no pattern dancer :wink: :lol:

    Besides Boriken, weren't one of your last words to me when I was in NY that you were going to work on your On1 :roll: :roll: :lol:

    hehehehe. Well, I might be able to do a little on2 before then -- but 4 years of on1 will be tough to reprogram =)
