After the 2017 Earthquake in Mexico City

October 14, 2017


Sorry, I haven’t been posting…but I’ve been trying to get back into the swing of things around here. Monday I went and got my first mani/pedi and haircut. The barber was recommended to me by another person so I know he would be great.

I walked around my neighborhood and saw some of the devastation (see pics) and also found new places for me to frequent.

My mani/pedi took forever and I will never go back there. The lady was patient with me though and patiently took her time with my mani/pedi too 😞. The cost was $310 ($19) pesos. I walked around my neighborhood a bit more and found another for $220 pesos so I’ll go there next time.

My new barber is great. He lived years in Los Angeles and speaks english. My haircut was $300 pesos ($16) and it was a decent haircut. Not the best haircut I’ve ever had but I can’t complain.

I also got my dog a haircut and wash for $200 pesos ($11) at the local groomer.

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!
