PUERTO PROGRESO

Lived in Puerto Progreso, Yucatan, Mexico for 3 years. Many X-pats choose this town for the friendly, laid-back style.

Totally kidding with this photo!  Dental care really is excellent.

RENOVATIONS

Renovating our house in Progreso was a unique experience, including a big learning curve and leap of faith!

Electrical—definitely not touching it!

THE TERRACE (before)

Fair skinned, ginger-haired people don’t tolerate sunlight well, even for short periods of time. Fast-forward several hours of laying tile in the Mexican sun with zero amount of sunscreen lotion or hydration, nor wearing a hat. Those factors resulted in a severe case of sunstroke for one particular (stubborn) redhead.

THE TERRACE (after)

The sweat (and sunstroke) from tiling the terrace resulted in a great place to play the didgeridoo he brought from Australia…sounds exactly the same here in Progreso and even better outdoors!

The ‘didge’ sounds much better outdoors!
