Tamalyn Dallal, world reknown bellydancer, teacher, and intrepid traveller takes you on a ropm through Colombia, South
America in the 1980's, where she dances for mafiosos, becomes friends with a "Gamine" (street child), gets swept off her
feet by a lawyer affiliated with the guerillas, gets stuck in a remote jungle on a broken bus,etc. This is the story of
a belly dancer, and of Colombia in the 1980's. "They Told Me I Couldn't" is fascinating, funny, and you won't want to
put it down.
