This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel and Culture Photos

A rainy day leaves empty tables, but the show goes on as Natalia Pastorino and Alejandro Nievas tango at El Balcón, a club in Buenos Aires's San Telmo district. "There's a lot of sadness in our country," says Pastorino, "but when you dance, you forget. You focus on your partner, on the music. You dance with your heart."

From the December 2003 National Geographic magazine story "And Still They Tango".
