And I do mean SWEAT!

On a hot night, on Cuba’s Malecón, we danced our half-naked, dripping wet boodies off to this beat until I felt I wasn’t even human anymore. I had become a part of this beat and every bodily function pulsated to this rhythm.

But a huge Gulf wave slapped us out of our communal funktified fugue, and we jumped into the ocean to add our salty sweat to the Gulf.
