Reading Mong Lan's blog, found myself trying to analyze some of the words, trying to find a clear understanding of her ideas and experiences of Tango in Buenos Aires. Then, after a couple reads, I realized how the key to fully grasp the richness of this blog, one must also understand how a Poet like Mong Lan writes. Words come alive and interact with each other playfully. I can see now how the meaning evolves with the playing of the words to express what she feels when writing about each element of what Tango in Buenos Aires is and represents for her. It is rather refreshing to read a blog that does not merely defines or describes. But also, found that we (the reader) must understand where the writer is coming from as he or she expresses on a blog to fully grasp her intended message.

Nice article, Lan. Well done.
