Many familiar faces here from different places including Sitges (Barcelona) Festival. One of them an American guy seems to have got it into his head that I am called John. He slapped me on the back the other day and said "How´s it going, John" . I didn´t have the heart to tell him that he had got my name wrong so I just let it go. He has called me John a number of times since then. I just know it is going to backfire and I will regret not telling him straight away. I can imagine him meeting someone in the tango world from Sweden and him saying do you know "John the tall English guy from Malmoe", and the other person saying, "Do you mean Simon!" and the American saying " he told me he was called John".
