Salsa Much?

If you are ever in this part of the world, you must go Salsa dancing at least once. Tegus might not be the Salsa dancing capital - but some of us enjoy the music, the dancing, and the atmosphere.

There are two places that I know of that play salsa, sometimes even live.

Sabor Cubano
There's a Cuban restaurant called Sabor Cubano in Colonia Palmira, apart from having delicious Cuban food, it is a great place to go anyday, but from Thursday to Saturday you'll find more people, from professional dancing to amateur dancing and dancing just for fun.
You can check out their fanpage on facebook here..

La Caramba
They recently re-opened. It is where local artists get the chance to jam. I'm not loving the new location, but their bar food is good, beer is always cold and the bands are top notch.
But what's important in this post is their live Salsa on Saturdays.
Son de Tepas is the band that they have on Saturdays. Amazing live band.
So put on your dancing shoes, and Salsa the night away.
La Caramba's facebook page opens up when you click here --> La Caramba
You can follow them on twitter as well : @LaCaramba.

Plus, this weekend...

I love that my friends share my love for Tegus. As I mentioned in earlier posts, with Tegus, its the small things... the friendly people, the little places that have a story, the whole-in-the-wall places to eat, buildings with history that nobody seems to notice.
I might be biased, because after all, Tegus is where my heart is, it is my home.

And in this post, I must share a little of the nice things my friends see in Tegus.

There's a quote that says something about beauty being in the beholder's eye. You can see that in Ash's pictures (Ash is here <--- to the left). He hasn't lived in Tegus for long, but in his time here, he's captured not only a place in our hearts but amazing images of this little city. I am truly a fan of his pics, but the ones of Tegus are just impressive.
You can check them out in the "I Heart Tegus" tab in this blog... or just click here I <3 a="a" tegus="tegus">

Dani, on the other hand, has this amazing project going on. She calls it "1578" which is the year Tegucigalpa was founded. It is a movement that seeks to promote a positive image of Tegus. You often listen to the people who live here (or Capitalinos) saying: "Ughh, there's nothing to do here!". Well, Dani and her project believe that is not true, so she gets collaborates with creative, interesting people, NGOs, cultural organizations, etc. and shows us we are wrong. There are choices, there are places, there are things going on. You can check it out on facebook: Facelifting the image of Tegus: 1578

Beautiful Kris does her part too! Artist and dear friend, Kris has a mild addiction to Pinterest. She has the most random, interesting boards out there...and today I just saw she posted a board  about Vintage Tegus! It would be a crime if I didn't share it with you! You are just a click away from going to a retro Tegus. Enjoy!

So these are a few of the ways my friends show Tegus their love. I really do hope this increases your interest in it.

I hope you enjoy!
Happy Friday!

Lost and Found!

I know, I know... I've disappeared for a while now, but I'm back!
It's time we get this blog going on and make it useful for you guys out there. I hope you enjoy the information that I post. If you have comments and/or suggestions they are more than welcome!

Tegus is a little rainy today. Kinda droopy but by no means does that mean that there is nothing going on.  I have been updating the "What's Happening" page for you. Lots of events and places to go this August, so be sure to check it out.

Making this a quick to the point post. Just wanted to let you know I was back!
