Yes you read that title correctly… I sure did walk from the United States of America all the way to Mexico just for lunch (and a couple margaritas which were extra fuerte… uh… strong!).
So, down in Texas in a little town called Progreso, there is the Progreso International Bridge where you can pay $1.00 and walk across the bridge into Mexico… they don’t even check your passport (until you come BACK to the USA).
I made a super fun video all about it and we even saw a BOTTLE DANCER in the restaurant where we ate lunch, it was quite the experience.
Here is a shot of the bottle dancer in the restaurant… she literally just walked into the restaurant from the street, grabbed someone’s bottle of beer and went for it.
While I was there I obviously had to get a bag of Takis to try (I had never tried them until this trip! Crazy!) I’m not sure how but this was the only photo I got of me and Takis… please excuse me awkward face.
Also I need to share with you, this ELOTE “TRUCK” – it’s a jacked up golf cart powered by SOMETHING in that tank sitting on the passenger side. For any of you that don’t know, “Elote” is the proper name for Mexican Street Corn, which is basically sweet corn mixed with mayo, cheese and some chili seasoning that is very tasty!
A short and sweet little blog post here and if you want more, check out the video link further up in this post, it’s a really fun video if I do say so myself… and QUITE the experience!
Until next time my friends! Cheers!
