At the mention of the police being called for noise, my attention was further piqued. For over a decade now, I have always hosted a “cha-cha” birthday party, where I invite people to my home and teach them Latin dancing. I have always considered my birthday party an occasion to give rather than to expect much from others. But now I was faced with just barely having moved into this apartment building full of elderly Swiss people right before my birthday.
