Date at the Pyramids in Mexico City

January 23, 2018


I partied my life away this weekend. Friday night the Mexico City peeps and I went to a club and partied until almost 3am. Then we went and got tacos. We stumbled upon a few more Black people and danced our lives away.

Then Saturday I had a date drumroll not with a Mexican but with a South African. I can’t believe I have yet to go on a date with a Mexican. But honestly, I really haven’t tried. In a country with no Black people, I find them all the time. It is definitely ok with me, but I have to give you at least one story of a date with a Mexican right?

We took Uber there and back which took about an hour each way. Cost is about $50 total. Entrance to the pyramids is 70 pesos (about $3.88). I was shocked that the place wasn’t very crowded which was great for our pictures. As you can see we went to the pyramids and had a photo shoot together. Then we went to a “Japanese” restaurant (not a Japanese person in sight). Finished the night off with just sitting and talking for a while.

I’m sore as can be after climbing the pyramid but it was well worth it for the pics I took. I’m grateful he pushed me to go because I sure didn’t want to and I will definitely cherish my pictures forever.

Without a plan, Elyse Y. Robinson moved to México City after her mother passed away from blood cancer on November 11, 2016. She never heard of México City nor even visited México before. She just knew she had to escape America to mourn. She had quit her whole life to help her family anyway. She had nothing more to lose. She is going into her fourth year in México and she is there to stay!
