Bogotá With Tractor
Vaquero is having a wonderful time. Being away from our own national media insanity is deeply soothing to the nerves. He's in a luxury hotel and being taken very good care of. If I understand this correctly, tonight he's supposed to perform with what isn't really the Buena Vista Social Club, as so many died, but then, the first Buena Vista Social Club was a fairy tale concoction, and not anything like a cojunto of any form of traditional Cuban music anyway. But the singer with them now is a very long time amigo, so there ya go. It's just so funny, considering.
