Here is another street entertainer we saw. This amigo was dressed in native ceremonial garb, playing a flute, beating a small drum, and dancing all at the same time. Is that what is called multitasking? We encountered several beggers on the streets of Progreso, but were more inclined to give to someone like this who was willing to at least work a little and provide some enjoyment in exchange for our contribution.
At several points along the main five blocks of Av. Benito Juarez in Nuevo Progresso we saw several different street entertainers. Their music was enjoyable and we thought that it added a festive touch to the character and ambience of the town. We sat on a bench in front of these two talented xylophone players and enjoyed several lively latin tunes. Then we dropped a few pesos into their tip basket.
