My World


(mens sana in corpore sano apud escam sanam)

I‘m a computer guy who found salsa dancing very late in life and that took me to a place where I met a lady I loved and promised to look after for the rest of my life!

Before I met Salsa Supergirl (Boikanyo) I was known as Salsa Superman. I used to go salsa dancing 5 or 6 nights a week travelling up 1200 miles per week to locations in Southampton, Bournemouth, Reading, North London, Kent, Lewis, Brighton, Bognor & Southsea.

My favourite location was always El Grande at the Colosseum in Vauxhall, London – now relocated to Scala in Kings Cross. My ex partner Boikanyo and I went there on the third Friday of every month during our 6+ years together and danced locally at the Irish Club in Southsea on Wednesdays whenever we could fit it into our busy schedules.

I‘m now back to my Salsa Superman days but only 3 or 4 nights a week at the moment but Katie is still the loving daughter she ever was and me the loving dad – even though we live 80 miles apart! She’s 19 now (Spring 2017) and comes salsa dancing with me occasionally in London.

I remember it well – an energetic salsa dance in Boikanyo’s family compound on a 30°C Boxing Day in 2008 at Maun, Botswana on sand as hot as the nearby Kalahari Desert!. Don’t forget this is summer time at the Tropic of Capricorn (we drove passed that road sign on the way from Gaborone)! The line of latitude of the Tropic of Capricorn (23.5 degrees south of the equator) may be seen on this map!
