Queen Mary 2 stopped in Sydney for two nights in March. I was quite excited, because I’ve booked a short cruise on the ship for next year. Wildly extravagant, I know! 🙂 QM2’s sister ship, Queen Victoria, was here a few days before QM2, lit overall in a very eye-catching purple; at least QM2 confined the purple glow to the globular thing on top (various electronic instruments, I suspect).

Nuevo Progreso is a small town just across the Rio Grande River from Texas. It thrives on the proximity to hundreds of thousands of “snowbirds” — retired Canadians and Americans who migrate south for the winter. Living in towns such as Brownsville, McAllen and Harlingen (in my parents’ case!), these Winter Texans walk across the bridge into Progreso for prescription medicines, souvenirs, dental work — and eating, drinking and dancing!

This is the cruise ship Queen Victoria, bathed in rather startling purple light. We get a lot of different cruise ships in Sydney, but this purple look is not common.
