1. Caitlin M. Kelly approaches the subject through physics, supplying photographic evidence to support her claim:

Tango does not interest me as a dance. I am not drawn to learn it because I live in Argentina. "Why not?" I am asked by a puzzle-faced traveler in town to eat a few steaks, go to a tango show and say they've been, seen and done in one more place.
