  1. Tango

    The tango is a partner dance that originated in the 1890s along the Río de la Plata, the natural border between Argentina and Uruguay, and soon spread to the rest of the world. Early tango was known as tango criollo. Today, there are many forms of tango extant. Popularly and among tango dancing circles, the authentic tango is considered to be the one closest to the form originally danced in Argentina and Uruguay. In 2009, UNESCO approved a joint proposal by Argentina and Uruguay to include the tango in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists.

  5. Emeasoba George:

    Feeling of love without expressing it is like wrapping a gift and yet refusing to give it out to someone who it is meant for. And you ought to agree with me that an unpresented gift is never appreciated, unles­s/until it's presented to someone who it is meant for. Now, that is to say true love is meant to be expressed orally, practically and otherwise. Oh! yes, love is more than just a feeling. So, it should be showcased or shared. I mean, mere feeling of love is incomplete, until and unless it is expressed or shared by cash, kind, gift wise or otherwise. Yes! y­ou heard me right, it takes two or more to tangle or tango. Therefore, let there be proofs of your love.
