Our encounter with the Harlem Globetrotters

Turbo poses with future b-ball stars, Solana and Frances

As we waited for the final leg of our flight, Santiago, Chile to Mendoza, Argentina – a 40-minute flight – we ran into the Harlem Globetrotters.  The girls had their picture taken with Turbo, number 44.  The team’s road manager offered to put us on the guest list, so shortly after settling into our new apartment, we hailed a taxi and headed to Estadio Talleres, a building which resembled a small hangar with bleachers.  We got to sit in one of two rows of white plastic chairs on the court under one of the baskets.  Frances volunteered to dance the Village People’s “YMCA” on the court with one of the players who, after the dance, pulled off a sweaty wristband and slipped it on Franny’s arm.
