    Is Salsa Worse Than Cocaine?


    Why do I hear so many people site the similarities between the two?
    • "Salsa is my drug".
    • "I needed my Salsa fix for the week".
    • "I can't get enough of it".

    I was thirty years old when I took my very first basic step. I got sick of "home life" that evening, and decided to go out to an old "disco/techno/hip-hop" club I heard on the radio a few months before. It was located in Long Beach at the Shoreline Village. When I got there, the place had since turned into a Salsa Club called Cantina Tiburone. I went in, and decided to check out the scene. I was the first one there, and except for the DJ and bartender, I was the only person there. The only reason I stayed was because I noticed the music. It was a strange, new jazzy "Latin-Spanish" music that I had never heard before. I always thought Spanish music was Mexican Mariachi stuff with boots and big hats. (I didn't get out much...) I stayed for the next few songs, and amazingly enough, started really getting into the music! I actually liked it! A few couples came in the room.
