I found myself in Raro on a Friday night and what else was there to do other than hit the bar scene with my newfound friends. After some milling about and an executive decision to leave the overly drunk and obnoxious birthday girl back at the hostel, we decided to check out Whatever Bar before heading over to Rehab. What we didn’t know is that a dance competition for a bar tab was awaiting us when we walked into Whatever Bar.
What I knew before we hit the bar was that 2 out of the 3 of us liked to boogie. It was the Aussie with his bright white shoes gleaming in the night that I wouldn’t have taken as a dancer even after he started to grind up the dance floor. At first I thought he was doing it to impress us and then I thought it might be for free booze for the night. Then it dawned on me – HE LIKES TO DANCE!
The dance competition lasted for what felt like hours and he was committed. My Aussie friend hopped around the dance floor like it was on fire and he was in the middle of having a seizure. All I can say is what he lacked in rhythm, he most definitely made up with heart. It was as though his awkward moves turned to magic in the midnight air and soon, everyone in the bar was rooting him on. It goes without saying that this dancing machine not only won over the crowd but the judges adored him as well. The moral of this story is no rhythm…no problem as that won’t stop you from winning a bar tab for you and all your friends!
