Yijahhhh. Two. Two. Oooone. Two. Two. Oooone.
We started the night dancing "two-step" in Wild West, a country bar in Houston, Texas.
We danced in circles around the dancing square along with men with boots, checkered shirts, and cowboy hats, and women with tight clothes and exaggerated make-up (a look that enhanced their beauty despite being outrageous).
We observed the cowboys and their peculiar clothing with amazement (we had only seen people dressed like that in cowboy movies). They also looked at us, our sober clothing and our lack of rhythm as we attempted to dance that type of intermittent vallenato called two-step.
With time, we got used to them, and they got used to us. Together, we continued to enjoy $1 drinks and the good vibe of the place as we uncovered a side of Houston we hadn’t explored before.
