I haven’t been to Mexico since I was a kid. I don’t really think it counted then since it was Tijuan.

Anyhow, when I was down visiting the folks just out of Harlingen TX we decided to go down to Mexico for Margarita’s. We ended up walking across the Rio Grande river

to a town called Nuevo Progreso.

It was fun having Margarita’s down there, however the difference between the haves and the have nots was a bit much for me. It made it somewhat depressing. I would have taken more pictures, but I was uncomfortable flaunting a $300 phone in the middle of people scraping by. I know a lot of the winter Texans don’t bat an eye over it, but it bothered me.
