Excellent report!

I'll jump in here and say that bk brkr baker and I chatted a bit about N. Progreso, which is absolutely one of my favorite places to spend a lazy day.

A word of warning, however - if either the Mexican military or the US Border Patrol knows that you are taking photos of them, they will confiscate them.

Been there, gotten the lectures.
