So, can the new Pope dance the tango?
Would he be milonguero?
Will he get the British and Argentines to get alnong over the Malvenas / Falklands.
Maybe he could draw a line through the islands and...
We're all Italians here, one woman in BA told me. Already heard a clip of the pope speaking and sounds like he has his Italian down.

Sorry. Can't visualize the new Pope dancing tango. Glad he does, though.
Everyone should wear their red shoes in honor of the new Tango Pope.
I'm on it!
According to this article, scroll down...
A POPE WHO TANGOS?
When he young and dancing, i wonder if he ever envisioned himself as being the pope?
Can't visualize the Pope paying his own bill where he had been staying, either; but that's what he did. It's that humility/vow of poverty thing. I like it.
I think he was an excellent choice, plus an excellent PR move for the church.
i wonder if the pope feels the music or memorized steps
As long as he doesn't do ganchos and boleos on a crowded dance floor.
Might there come a new move named for him?
By the way, it's just Pope Francis, not Francis I. He won't be called Francis I until there's a Francis II.
Maybe at the next big international fest, if such are ever held he'll give it a blessing.
Perhaps he might get his Red Shoes from a shoe shop too, and not have them hand made, paid for by the alms of the poor.
Have been wondering how long it would take...
“He takes his vows of poverty very seriously. He refused to live in the bishop’s palace in Buenos Aires and instead moved into a small apartment where he cooks his own meals. He got rid of the chauffeur-driven limousine and took the bus to work,” says the Rev. Thomas Reese, a Vatican expert at the Woodstock Theological Center at Georgetown University in Washington.
When he was made a cardinal by John Paul II in 2001, his congregation collected money so they could accompany him on his trip to Rome. But he asked them all to stay at home in Argentina, to give the collection to the poor, and to let him travel to the Vatican on his own, noted Corriere della Sera, one of Italy’s leading newspapers, this morning.
Not in that get-up anyway!
Getting a visual. lol
The Pope only knows ONE figure: The Cross.
