My 3 Year Anniversary of Leaving America

November 26, 2019


Buenos días! Today marks my 3 year anniversary of leaving the states for Mexico.

November 26, 2016

After my mother passed away (November 11, 2016) from blood cancer I had nothing left holding me in the states. I had quit my whole life to take care of my mother and my family. Left a good job, the city I was living in, etc. etc.

I had never been to Mexico! I saw the cheapest spot where my Southwest points could take me and it was Mexico City. I had never even heard of that place before but I was going! Didn’t know a word of Spanish either. 🥴

📆 TrustedHousesitters - Travel like a local for less. Exchange pet care for free accommodation.

Little did I know I would fall in love with the place. Called my Daddy up and told him I’m never coming back. 😂😛🙃🥴🤷🏾‍♀️🙆🏾‍♀️ I love me some México City…DF…CDMX…ciudad de México!

México City changed my life for the better, helped me mourn, and is one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life.

México is home and will always have a special place in my heart.


My favorite pic of me…I’m on top of one of the pyramids located outside of México City

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!
