South of Progreso, TX, you can walk across the bridge over the Rio Grande River and be in Nuevo Progreso, Mexico.
The river here is beautiful.
This large statue welcome you.
Like Algodones (near Yuma, AZ), the town contains a large number of pharmacies where you can buy your prescription medicine for a much lower cost, and without a prescription.
Other stores sell all kinds of Mexican goods.
I really liked these flamingos, but what would I do with them???
Another reason to come to Mexico is for inexpensive manicures and pedicures. And they are not just for the women!
This big biker guy got a Harley Davidson pedicure. (And was nice enough to let me take his picture!)
Time for lunch - and the town has several nice restaurants. We even got serenaded by this duo. (Once again, if this looks black, click on the arrow anyway and it will play.)
After the huge lines in Algodones to get back into the US, this border crossing was a pleasant surprise. The line was about 10 feet long instead of a half mile.
