"Regalo Para Mi..."

As you cross the bridge into Progreso like on most bridges leading from the U.S. into Mexico at times you hear a voice faint at first, but steadly grows louder as you step closer to the Mexican side of the bridge, "Regalo para mi!" Men and Women, mostly women at times a few other times many begging for change from tourists and other walking along the bridge. I think many people that go to places like the Winter Texan magnet that is Progreso tend to ignore these people and seem to forget that a little change (literally) can help these folks that gather under the bridge.
