Salsa in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

English follows.

ベトナムのホー・チミンへサルサ遠征に行ってきました。ハロウィンということも有り、この日は各サルサの教室、タイ、シンガポールの人が一斉に集まっていました。

現地のサルセーラ、Xiちゃん(シーちゃん)には現地入り前からお世話になり、現地でもお世話になりました。英語も堪能で元気がよく面倒見も良かったです。彼女なしでは今回のサルサ遠征は楽しめなかったです。もちろんルエダも踊ってきましたよ♪

ホー・チミンでは、男性より女性の割合が圧倒的に多かったです。一番驚いたのは、踊った女性の動きがみんな軽かったこと!観光中にも感じましたが、踊ってみてもベトナムの人はやはり優しいと確信しました。

 

 We went to Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam to go dancing. There were lots of people not only from Vietnam but also from Thailand and Singapore there to celebrate Halloween. One salsera in particular, Xi, showed us where to dance salsa and introduced us to many dancers. We really appreciated her kindness. Without her help, we couldn't have enjoyed dancing there as much as we did. We also danced Rueda de Casino, of course.

There were lots more salseras than salseros. The most amazing thing was that all the salseras' movements were so smooth and soft. I felt like everyone was so kind and friendly both while dancing with the salseras as well as when sightseeing around Ho Chi Minh.
